    Hi Rajeev,

    When a record fails any validation in Validation Step in WF it goes to previous step.But to automatically ROLLBACK you need to have STOP step.It is how you design you WF.

    Here BRANCH can be handy in the WF diagram,you can update a flag after 2-3 failed attempts of a record,BRANCH before VALIDATE step checking for that flag,YES goto STOP(ROLLBACK) NO goto VALIDATE step.I am assuming you have a PROCESS step where the failed records are kicked back.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

    Hi,

    Let me understand the requirement; Do you want to manually roll back the record because validation failed ?

    if yes, then it would be better to have automatic roll back in workflow once the validation result is False. If true, the record can continue.

    However if its not designed this way, then record shud not be checked out in worflow. then you can roll back.

    Else, workflow wont allow.
