2350257 - Configre Business Ruels for Furnish Equipment workflow - Onboarding


  • The Q2 2016 Release referenced the ability to configure business rules to drive new hire activities. When I attempted to configure a business rule, I only saw a few options under OnboardingProcess > CandidateInfo. I was hoping to be able to configure business rules on information that was entered in the Post Hire Verification step such as Company, Division, Department, and/or Location.


  • Bizx/ Admin Center

Reproducing the Issue

  • Navigate to Admin Tools > Manage Onboarding > Configure New Hire Activity Planning Process
  • Create a new onboarding process configuration
  • Navigate to Admin Tools > Configure Business Rules
  • Select Create New Rule
  • Select Basic
  • Enter Rule Name
  • Enter OnboardingProcess as the Base Object
  • Select Left Expression
  • Navigate to CandidateInfo section
  • View options available (Note: Custom fields in OnboardingCandidateInfo are not supported)


To use fields in the business rules, the fields in the OnboardingCandidateInfo object must have property "Viability" as  "Read Only" or "Editable".
  • Go to Bizx/Admin Center
  • Go to "Configure Object Definitions"
  • Select "Object Definition"/ "OnboardingCandidateInfo"
  • Click "Take Action" and update the necessary field, property "Viability" must be "Read Only" or "Editable"
