2260431 - How To Enable Business Rules for Workflow Derivation and Event Derivation

Symptom

How to enable Business Rule based Workflow triggers and Event Derivation for Employee Central 2.0

Features:

  • Enable Business Rules for Workflow Derivation
  • Enable Business Rules for Event Reason Derivation

Environment

Employee Central 2.0

Resolution

There are a few things to note if you would like to enable the following 2 features in your instance -:

  • Enable Business Rules for Workflow Derivation
  • Enable Business Rules for Event Reason Derivation

What should I consider if I would like to move my Workflow and/or Event Derivation off of XML configuration a onto Business Rules?

  1. You cannot mix the features together (XML V.s Business Rules). Either you have Workflows and Event Reasons controlled via XML or via Business Rules. It is not possible to mix these features together
  2. There is no automated migration from one to the other - this will require a Professional Services/Partner engagement to re-create the XML based configuration in Business Rules. This is not covered by Cloud Product Support as part of a Configuration Change Request.
  3. Currently the only difference in terms of which elements are supported, is that Business Rules for Workflow Derivation does not support the Dependents portlet, where as the XML based Workflow rules does support the Dependents portlet - this is supported in the b1602 release
  4. Further current limitations of Business Rules based Event Derivation and Workflow triggers can be found in the Employee Central Master Implementation Handbook - Section 10.7 - "Limitations for Workflow and Event-Reason Derivation OnSave Rules"
