Trigger Error



I receive an error when trying to enable the new trigger that I am currently working on. The error says "Can not enable trigger due to 2 cascading triggers". 


I don't see anything wrong with my trigger, I'm just passing the records to another table from #inserted. 


Can someone help?

Hi @Glitch,


This error occurs when you exceed the limit of 2 cascading triggers. Caspio's cascading triggers is only limited to 2.

Now, what are cascading triggers? 

This is when, a triggers action activates another trigger.

So for example,

Table A has trigger 1 > The trigger is to Update Table B.

Table B has trigger 2 > Trigger 2 runs on UPDATE, then again activates another trigger.

Now these are cascading triggers. These acts as a waterfall trigger. 


I think this error may also happen when you are trying to create triggers on the same event.

Say, the events are - Insert records to table1 upon Insert on table2 . And you have another trigger that would insert records to Table2 as well.

You can view the triggers associated on the Table by clicking Properties under the Tablename.



  From there, you can check which of the Triggers are causing the conflict. 


Hope this helps!

Just wanted to share this, this is what I have experienced. There is an Error message that says. "Triggered Action cannot be enabled because it exceeds the limit of 2 cascading triggers." - For this case, I believe that this is a system limitation. Also, I have a grow plan and the nested is up to 2.
