Custom object creation via webservice

there is a business requirement to make a button from Opportunities, which would send a notification to the owner with some information about the current status of the opportunity.

So to send an email you need a workflow. It can be triggered either via object update or creation. To change an existing object there are two ways of doing it:
> to edit a field (this would require the user to press "Save" button after the "Send notification button")
> to edit it via a webservice (this would prevent user to continue working on that object and would require him/her to close it and open again, losing all the unsaved changes).

Therefore a solution with new object creation has been chosen.

You are using a custom object CustomLog_c and creating an object with a webservice adf.webServices.CustomObject.createEntity. (Then the workflow is getting triggered after object creation). However few of the desired technical fields are never triggered.


The createEntity web service method call should create a custom object record with all detail attributes.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a custom object using App Composer
2. Update and or Create a new record via web service using Groovy
3. Few of the object attributes are not being passed and updated on the created record

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot see few of the important attributes for the custom object record created.
