Issue/Introduction

When creating a workflow, if you have two tasks that refer to each other as dependencies, upon saving you will see a stack trace with the following:

com.uc4.api.objects.CyclicException: The Workflow must not contain cycles.


Cause

The error 'The Workflow must not contain cycles' is as designed; a workflow can not be created where it would be unable to fully complete (a cyclic workflow). 

The stack trace is part of incorrect error handling.

Environment

Release : 12.2, 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

This has been fixed as part of AWI 12.3.3
