One time execution of a rule

I have a rule which populates a value in another field upon field change. What happens is that when ever there is a field change the value in the result field also changes. Now there is a requirement that wants to put the value just once that means that rule should only occur once and then it should not occur second time

Re: One time execution of a rule


One suggestion I would make would be to add a hidden field to the Request Type. Then have the Rule check that this hidden field is empty to execute the Rule. As part of the Results, update this field to include some value, like '1' so the Rule will not be triggered when your primary field changes again.
