'Get confirmation from user' rule shows unexpected behavior if a for-loop is executed after

When a for-loop is executed after the "get confirmation from user" action rule, the for-loop and other rules that follow are still fired even though the 'Cancel' button is selected.


Here is an example that illustrates the issue.

The rules are configured as follows:


1. On the confirmation dialog box, click on the "Cancel" button. 


2. The for-loop and show a message rules are still active. The expected behavior is that it should not continue with the execution of the rules. 



This has been logged as a bug and will be addressed in a future release.

As a workaround, you may add an unbound rule for the for-loop and the other rules that follow.


Then, call the unbound rule as a nested rule. Use the "Execute another rule" action rule.
