Entity event layer - System & custom schemas
20:20 Sep 16, 2020
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 -
- 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.
- Are there any restrictions around which schemas/objects or kinds of changes, these entity events will get triggered for?
- 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?
