A runtime event is created to execute a business service on the WriteRecordUpdated event of a custom BC.   The RTE never fires if the condition on the RTE involves a field not Force Active or displayed on the applet where the update is triggered from.   

The steps to reproduce the behavior are below:

 1. Create a Business Service with one method:

BS Name: HelloWorld

Method: Hello


2. On the Administration Runtime Events / Action Sets screen create an action set called "HelloWorld" to run this service.

Action Type: BusService

Sequence: 1

Business Service Name: HelloWorld

Business Service Method: Hello

3. On the Administration Runtime Events / Events screen create an Event on:


ObjectName: Contact

Event: WriteRecord

Sequence: 2 (It set to 2 because there is OOB events with sequence 1)

Expression: [Manager Last Name] Is Not Null

Action Set Name: HelloWorld

4. Reload runtime events.

5. Goto Contact > More Info view "Contact Details View (Detail tab)" and set the Manager Last Name field.

6. Update the any field (ie. Job Title) on the same view and the event fires as expected.

7.Then goto another view "Contact Detail View" and update the Job Title again. On this view, the event does not fire.
