Because workflow policies are based on database triggers, a workflow policy can take effect on a database record only after the record is committed. If you have a policy that is based on multiple database tables, the policy takes effect only if the records on all tables are committed. For example, Opportunity Revenue is stored in the S_OPTY_POSTN table, and lead quality is stored in the S_OPTY table. A policy with conditions Opportunity Revenue > 10M and Lead Quality = high takes effect only when the records are committed on both tables.

If you are creating a workflow policy component to monitor a business component, be sure to include all the fields that are being used in search specifications as workflow policy columns.
