  • 1.  Automation/Pipeline Current User Question

    Posted 02-04-2022 10:26

    This may seem like an odd question, is the current user when a pipeline or automation is running the person who created the automation or pipeline?

    I'm asking because I have an automation (soon to be converted to a pipeline) that is throwing an error when updating some records because there is an issue with the custom data rule in the table.  I was thinking if the user when the automation or pipeline is updating the record I could add a condition to the custom data rule to fire only if the current user is not an admin.

    I believe you are correct.

    I'll try it in one of my test apps.  Thanks

    I just confirmed what I was thinking.  Of course it showed me as the user when I updated the field to trigger an automation, but it also showed me when another user triggered the automation.
