MDM Workflow - Assign


Hi all,

I am trying to set up a workflow that automatically triggered when I update the main table. I have created an assignment to assign a static value to one of the text fields and inserted this assignment as an assign step within the workflow. (the assignment works fine when triggered manually)

The workflow Max Record launch is set to 1 and the Max Time Launch is set to 0h.

When I update a main record table, the workflow gets triggered but goes into status 'Error' at the assign step. I am able to manually 'Perform' the assignment and then forward it to the next step within the workflow.

Do you know if this is because I was still locking the record when I was updating the record? I tried declaring the Start and Stop of the workflow with Check Out and Check In, but I am still receiving the same problem.

What is the correct way to use an assignment within an MDM workflow?

Are check-in/outs mandatory?

Please help. Thanks in advance.
