Launcher gets triggered by another workflow

AnjaliBiddanda

I have a launcher that is triggered on a cq:PageContent node on 'Node modified' and I have set a condition to prevent it from firing if a property exists. However, the OOTB Publish workflow is triggering this launcher.

I've used the Exclude List to ignore any changes triggered by another workflow process by adding this:
event-user-data:changedByWorkflowProcess

That didn't help. The user data "changedByWorkflowProcess" would already be set by this OOTB publish workflow I'd imagine

I've also tried adding the following to the exclude list, with no luck:

cq:lastReplicated,cq:lastReplicatedBy,cq:lastReplicationAction,jcr:baseVersion,jcr:versionHistory.

Any suggestions?

Thanks Jorg. You're right, I think the event-user-data can only be used for the Assets workflows. Btw, the answer for this has been updated here: https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-experience-manager/launcher-gets-triggered-by... 

I had incorrectly raised this question under Forms, and there's a duplicate question raised in AEM.

This does not sound like an AEM Forms related question. You should place it higher up in the Adobe Experience Manager section

Thanks @ Kosta_Prokopiu1. I've raised it there. I don't know how to delete this one though?

Hi,

 

I am not sure that the user data you mentioned is used by (all!) workflows to prevent other workflows from firing. Where did you find this documented?

Regarding your usecase you have test many different conditions (actually a lot of changes happen on cq:PageContent nodes). Maybe an ObservationListener or a ResourceChangeListener are better suited here.
