Two Users Triggering Same Workflow in AEM 6.3

anupamp17770278 14-06-2018

Scenario:  I have a custom workflow which has only one Process Step. It gets triggered through a launcher.

Issue: I See the WF gets triggered 3-4 times. One by Admin(I have logged in as admin), and rest by workflow-process-service.

I am not sure why will the same workflow get triggered multiple times by different users.

Work Around: After adding another step Goto or participant step it gets triggered by the admin user only which should be the expected behavior.

Not sure if this has something to do with permissions. Any help on this is appreciated.

Its on node modify. The condition is set on cq:tags==<certain_tag> .

Type= nt:unstructured Location: /content/dam(/.*/)jcr:content/metadata



Which version are you using?

And what is event for workflow triggered

  • Event Type (node creation, deletion, modification, etc.)
  • Type of node
  • Location where event should be “watching”
  • Condition (properties of the node) to match
