I am using the rules module to send an email when a particular CCK field field_test is changed. These are the steps I performed:

Event: After updating existing content
Condition: Field has changed

Under Field I chose field_test. Under DO I chose the action as email.

My issue is that even if any other field is updated under that content type, it still triggers my rule, under debugging it shows Condition Updated content's field 'field_test' has been changed evaluated to TRUE.

I'd appreciate any help on this.


  • What kind of field is field_test?

    Hmm... It looks like they had this issue a couple years ago, including with textfields, but the issue was marked fixed. Be sure to update to the latest version of CCK though that's probably not the issue.

I figured what my issue was. I had an earlier version of the CCK module (6.x-2.1) and once upgraded to the latest version (6.x-2.9) the rule behaves as expected.

Thanks to jordojuice for pointing me in the right direction.
