2584761 - Validation Rule not Working

Symptom

You have configured a validation rule for a field. But it is not triggering validation message.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales Work center.
  2. Click on Opportunities view.
  3. Then goto Products facet.
  4. Click on Add and choose any product.
  5. Click on Add and product gets added.
  6. Here you have defined a validation rule to trigger on save , but this is not working.

Cause

This is expected. If a field is not available by default in header section, and is only available in pop-up (add), there will not be error message triggered on save.

Resolution

For validation rule to work, you need to use only 1:1 fields (not list / multi-value fields) which are either available in header or the first facet once screen is launched.
