Has anyone also experienced problems when using Custom Workflow Inputs for me (regex validated gen_text_input) and User Input Rules together ? Today I've used a such a Custom Workflow Input as an Input Type for one of my User Inputs in a Workflow. In that same Workflow i was also using User Input Rules. When testing the workflow, I noticed that my validated input was not working. So I tried it in a different workflow, where i had nothing configured, but this one validated Input and there the validation worked correct. After doing that, i tried the validated user input again in the original workflow but this time with User Input Rules turned off and that way the validation worked. But after enabling the User Input Rules again, the validation didn't work anymore. Am I missing a setting, that i have to do when using these settings together ?
