2408916 - Alert and Notifications not triggered


Alert and Notifications are not triggered

Per initial review- the rule, workflow, employee data and job are fine

If we get the logs from business rule execution log, we see error such as: No context object found to execute SET action


Employee Central - Alerts and Notifications

Reproducing the Issue

  • Make changes to employee data and run the EC Alerts and Notification job

  • The notifications are not sent and alerts are not triggered


Goto business rule execution log and you can see only the else part in the rule is failing

The log says as: No context object found to do SET action

If we go through the logs, we will get to know in what context the error occured, an example log:

No context object found to execute SET action (property=alert.wfConfig, base=workPermitInfo...

In above line, the context is with alert paramter


As per the workflows implementation guide, we are supposed to use exact parameters as illustrated

These are case sensitive and hence configuring Alert as alert caused issue in this particular example

Snapshot from implementation guide:


Names/Codes inside highlighted box should be exactly as mentioned and matching in case used
