A discount trigger was created. It attempts to use an EVAL() token to cause it to fire. The token is supposedly allowed since it's there in the GUI, but the pipeline will not start once the trigger is associated with a discount model.

This is the error that is displayed:

bin/ifw: An error occurred during creation.

Originator : ifw.DataPool.DiscountModelDataModule.Module
Destination :
Condition expression: 'EVAL("getVoiceBundleProducts2")'

State : false
Severity : CRITICAL
Thread : 1

The function as shown below is a very simple function that compiles cleanly:

use EXT_FList;
use EXT_Opcode;

//Global Variables

Bool DEBUG = true;

function Long getVoiceBundleProducts2
     return 1;
