Itemupdated Event Receiver not triggered when item update from workflow

I have created workflow on document library which simply update single column. And i have also create ItemUpdated event receiver which change permission on document.

But itemUpdated event not trigger from workflow. But when i update item manually then event receiver triggered.

I have use Update Item in workflow to trigger Itemupdated event but still event receiver not trigger. But upon manually updation of item event receiver trigger.

Is there any issue or i forget any step in process. Or is it not supported in office 365?

This question is a bit similar as yours, which says :

It is because you have to activate two times.

Both in the solution page and the you have to go to the Feature page and activate the feature.

Hope this helps.

  • Thanks for answer @Vishwas. I have activated both time. And my event receiver works when i change any item manually. It not works only when item updated from workflow. Sep 26, 2015 at 9:59
