"Set Value" rule not working when data is updated through Confiform Table

HI Team,


I have a set a form and a table view for the data and enabled inline edits.

I have set up a rule definition where a x field's value will be updated with user's email address when value on a dropdown field named Y changed to A or B. The rule works fine when the values are updated using the view/edit API or Form view but when the field Y is updated through tableview the rule is not working on the corresponding column of field x.


Please advise.

The Field Definition Rules are executed and applied ONLy when you modify the whole record. That is why they are called this way.

Which means - these are the rule that are used/working on form dialog

When you update the fields individually or using APIs then these rules are not executed

For such cases please consider to set up
