What does "Action condition failed" really mean?

Getting this error in logs and I can’t figure out what the actual problem is.

I already searched the forums and found four other questions also looking for this answer, however none of them received a real answer.

  1. Action Condition Failed - Logs
  2. Action condition failed in logs
  3. Making Change to a thing: Action condition failed on first try
  4. How to DeBug "action condition failed" inside the logs for a scheduled API workflow?

What types of things can cause “Action condition failed” to show up in the logs?

It just means the condition on the action didn’t pass. What are you trying to debug, anyway?

It’s not an error, by the way, it’s just a FACT.


Thanks, the way it was worded “failed” made me think it was an error. Now I understand it simply means a condition went the false route, not a failure at all: in fact, completely as designed.

I have solved my issue, turns out I had accidentally pasted the dev URL for a webhook in Square for production.

This log happened to be showing this seeming error on the exact action that wasn’t working so the language really tripped me up. I hope they make that more clear in the future, or at least if anyone searches the forum in the future, they can see this and learn that it’s not actually an error.
