2791718 - B1905 - Unable to Open Business Rules or Configure Business Rules Tools


  •  After the release during the past weekend, it is not possible to access to the business rules in Preview Instance. 
  •  Business rules cannot be opened across all preview tenants. We suspect this is because of the release applied over the weekend.
  •  There is an error while trying to edit any business rule in the preview instances.

  • For any business critical rules, which need updating, the following workaround can be used.
  • Please note, we do not recommend carrying out this action for all rules, only for those which require a change prior to the fix being provided.
  • The workaround is to modify the Start Date of the rule later than 01/01/1900, for example, 02/01/1900
    1. From Admin Centre navigate to Manage Data
    2. In the first dropdown, choose Rule
    3. Search for the specific rule
    4. Select Take Action > Make Correction on the first record
    5. Change the start date to a date after 01/01/1900
    6. Save changes.
