SLA does not initiate on screen flow stage



Service-level agreement (SLA) does not initiate on the screen flow stage, when it reaches the goal or deadline. This occurs when a case is open and the stage is not complete within the defined SLA. However, it works correctly on exiting the case without completing it.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Arrive at a stage with a screen flow and defined SLA.
  2. Leave the case open on the screen without completing it. SLA does not trigger when it reaches the goal or deadline.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior: When a case is in a screen flow, it is locked (by the user). Hence, an SLA agent cannot update the case.
