When a UI error is generated due to use of an invalid relational merge field in a process the running user or org admin should receive an error email as well. However, post UI error no error email is sent.
In a fresh 226 org
1) Create a process in Process Builder as follows:
Setup → Quick Find “Process Builder” → New
Set the Process Name, API Name, and for “The process starts when”, select “A record changes”
“+ Add object” → “Service Appointment”, “Start the process” → “when a record is created or edited”
“+ Add Criteria”, set criteria name, select “Formula evaluates to true”, and use the below formula
ISCHANGED( [ServiceAppointment].ParentRecordId )
“+ Add Action” → “Update Records” for “Action Type” → Set the action name → “Select the ServiceAppointment record that started your process” for “Record Type”
Select “No criteria-just update the records!”
Select “City” for field and set the value to “San Francisco”
Activate the process.
2) Navigate to the Service Appointments tab and create a new record, populate all the required fields, and try to save.
3) Observe the error and no email is sent.
Remove the invalid relational merge field from the process.
