  • Hi All,

    I'm a little confused.

    there are fields in State object and in the transition objects.

    What is the difference between the two?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    The difference is the moment the validation takes place. Rules placed in the State object are evaluated every time a user tries to save a Work Item in that particular state. The rules placed in the transition object are only evaluated when a user changes the state field.

    Kind regards,

    Fokko
