Important Information:

As of the 1902 release, you will no longer be able to update existing Workflow Rules for MDF related features or objects. Instead if new logic is required for existing Workflow Rules, the rule will need to be recreated using the new Purpose "Workflow". Please also note that the new rules with purpose "Workflow" will need to be placed "onSave" and not "onValidate" on the MDF object.

Again, please refer to the MDF handbook pages linked above for further guidance.
