Issue:

Set up a xog process for creating or updating timesheets and an auto start process.

After create or update of the timesheets, the auto start process is to be triggered based on the "create and update" condition.

The timesheets are created or updated correctly but there is no process started although the condition is met.

On creating or updating the timesheet manually through the UI, the process is started correctly.

 

Steps to reproduce:

1. Take the prj_timeperiod_read.xml to xog out an existing timesheet of a resource

2. Modify the output xml: add some hours for a new period in order to create a new timesheet.

3. Create in UI a process with auto start condition for create and update: ("Timesheet Status = 'Open')

4. Xog in the modified xml file.

 

Expected Results:

The timesheet to be created and the autostart process to be triggered

Actual Results:

The timesheet is created but the autostart process is not triggered
