Entity event layer - System & custom schemas

Hello Community,

 

The Entity event layer is a powerful tool to listen to changes to schemas on the server side and perform actions based on them. The documentation states the following - 

The Entity event layer mechanism is triggered after executing the event subprocesses of an object.

 

Few questions below - 

  1. Are entity events triggered for all system schemas & custom schemas? We know it works with Custom schemas, but we have had a few instances where it did not get triggered for system schemas Eg 'System administration object' or 'Image' object. We also notice that a business process with Start signal tied to the "System administration object" or 'Image" object also doesn't work. 
  2.  Are there any restrictions around which schemas/objects or kinds of changes, these entity events will get triggered for?
  3. Are the entity layer events triggered on the server exactly the same as the 'Signal' start events that we configure in the Business process designer?

Dear Shrikanth,

 

1.  It is triggered for all entity objects present in the configuration section.

 

2. It gets triggered by any CRUD operations performed using DataServevice (Entity and EntitySchemaQuery), OData, and OOTB business process elements. It will not get triggered if data is changed using Insert, Update, Delete classes, and if data is changed directly on the DB level.

 

3. It works the same as the Event subprocess https://academy.creatio.com/documents/technic-bpms/7-16/event-sub-process-element

Angela Reyes,

Thank you Angela for your clear responses.

I am presuming that there are no special settings to be done to enabled for them to be triggered on System objects. Hence, our errors are not the expected behavior is what I understand.

Angela Reyes,

Hi Angela. Quick follow up question - 

1. Do entity events get triggered for virtual objects & views as well? Virtual objects are also objects displayed in Configuration. So going by your explanation, It should. Can you confirm?

2. Are entity events listenable on the Client side? I do not think so. Can you confirm?

M Shrikanth,

1) I have not checked it - try to create a test process and check it. 

2) If you set up sending of an event it can be done. 

 

Best regards,

Angela
