I think we still have this issue on 9.05.702, as well.

Subject: Re: [Vantage] BPM Actions: Sync vs Async
That feature has an SCR on file at Epicor for that version.
I have a BPM on JobEntry.Update that does a couple things and generates an alert email. Fairly simple. It works completely fine when it’s set to synchronously execute. I wanted to flip it to asynchronously because due to the BPM it takes about 6 seconds for my Job to save while the BPM processes. I have the BPM Async process running and have verified via the BPMAction.log that it’s firing every minute as intended. When I trigger my BPM via JobEntry (in async mode), the Job record saves much faster as I had hoped. But my email never gets sent. I’ve looked in the BPMAction.log file and I do see that it “does something” because I see it stating “Starting Action” and “Action Completed”. However I see nothing in the epicor-smtp.log.txt file. I am on Vantage 8.03.409C.
Am I missing a step somewhere? Shouldn’t BPMs behave the same regardless of being set to async vs sync? TIA.
