Resolution

When configuring the take rules you need to make sure that you are selecting the Absence Validation scenario.

Once you select this scenario, you'll have an object called "Take Rule Parameters".

Inside this object we the "Processing Action", there you can select either Create, Edit or Cancel, this way you can use this parameter to trigger the rule in only some specific scenarios such as creation, edit and cancellation.
