Lookup filter and how rules are executed

Hello. I have two questions...

#1: If you have 5 "ConfiForms Rules for Field Definition" defined in a form are they evaluated in sequence?

#2: In regards to the lookup filter in "ConfiForms Rules for Field Definition", is the left side of the filter the source form? I'm having some issues where a lookup is always true and setting the value I want set. But it should not always return. I'm doing a date lookup in another form and whatever I do it always set the value even if the searched value is NOT in the form.


        Field1: Text

        Field2: Date Picker (yyyy-MM-dd)


        Field1: Date Picker: (yyyy-MM-dd)

        Rules for Field Def:

                Value to set: Support=Yes

                Lookup filter: Field2:[entry.Field1]

                Source Form: Form1:<pageid>

In Form1 data I have:

Field1      Field2

Test3       2021-12-20
Test2       2021-11-08
Test1       2021-09-13

So if the datepicker is setup for 2021-09-06 it still sets the value and it should not. I expect when I put in the datepicker 2021-09-13 it would only set the value.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

The filter is not working as I expect. Maybe I have the filter incorrect. Just banging my head against the wall. Can anyone help?

Could you provide storage format of the page with your form?

That would be easier to troubleshoot


I have tried to design the form like you have and I can confirm that for this setup the lookup will not work.

This seems to be a bug in ConfiForms - to be more precise, the bug is related to setting the static values from the lookup and set "field definition rule"

We will look into this asap


HI Alex, I just found that out myself. I can set a value from the form but not a static value like I did above.

Glad you found this. Make me feel better I"m not losing my mind. :-)

I think for now I'll go ahead and just place someone in the form to fill this value in as static.



Sorry about that. 

Confirmed to be a bug and we have fixed that now. Will publish an update for app shortly


Thank you!


The version that has this bug fixed is available in the Atlassian marketplace
