Deceased business rule to make spouse a constituent not working when globally changing records

When globally changing records to check the deceased box on a constituent with a non-constituent spouse the spouse is not being made a constituent even though under Config > Business Rules > Constituent Options > Deceased options the box "Make the spouse a constituent" is marked. Manually changing the constituent to deceased on their record works, and the spouse is made a constituent. But using global change does not work unless the boxes for "Make the deceased constituent and Honor/Memorial" and "Create a Tribute for the deceased" are also marked.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

In the meantime
  1. In In Config > Business Rules > Constituent Options > Deceased options mark the "Make the deceased constituent and Honor/Memorial" and "Create a Tribute for the deceased" boxes.
  2. Globally mark the Deceased? checkbox
  3. Globally unmark the Honor/Memorial checkbox

Steps to Duplicate

  1. In Config > Business Rules > Constituent Options > Deceased options
    • Mark the "Make the spouse a constituent" box
    • Do not mark the "Make the deceased constituent and Honor/Memorial" or "Create a Tribute for the deceased" boxes.
  2. Create a query of constituents who are deceased and that have non-constituent spouses
  3. Globally mark the Deceased? checkbox
