Business Rules are not executed during Archiving - Paris Release


Within previous releases of ServiceNow it was possible to configure Business Rules to run against Archive tables.

These would allow for modification of archive records during the archiving process, such as retaining the sys_id of a reference instead of the flatten value; ie name of referenced record

However as part of significant changes to the Archive feature within the Paris release of the ServiceNow platform Business Rules are no longer triggered during archiving

Please note that the retention of sys_id values for reference fields instead of flattening them has been identified as accepted enhancement to Archiving and as such the ability to configure this option will be included within our Quebec release via the 'Retain References for Archived Tables' feature
