I am using the rule engine to insert a branch template under an item on Item Save. The problem is that each item in the branch subsequently triggers Item Save. Is there a way to prevent the branch from triggering the rule? Or excluding the branch from the rule? Its making Item Save take forever.


Here is what the rule is actually doing:

  1. Is the item content (Checks path)
  2. Does the item inherit from a template
  3. The item does not already have the branch as a child

If all are true, insert the branch

  • In your save event code, you need to disable the execution of events. See samples on using the EventDisabler here sitecore.stackexchange.com/questions/1493/… May 5, 2020 at 10:12
  • I have already tested and confirmed that this is not true. Even with Event Disabler, all items in the branch trigger Item Save. May 5, 2020 at 11:50
