Executing a Plugin via a Workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was hoping someone could help with this; I need to execute a plugin, which set to run after an Update request on a custom entity. I have been doing this for some time now, with no problems. If I update the entity in question myself, the plugin executes.

    However... I have a workflow which changes a property in the entity every X minutes (currently 5) so that the entity can be verified against an external system. The external system is of no importance here, it is handled in the plugin. I would have thought that updating a property using a workflow, and updating it manually, would be exactly the same. Both should trigger an update request, both should execute the plugin. But when I run the workflow, the property updates, but the plugin no longer executes.

    Can anyone tell me if I am missing something very simple here? It's driving me mad!
