On the Opportunity object i have a validation rule as follows


     RecordType.DeveloperName = "My_Opportunity",


The goal is to allow the creation of a new Opportunity Record of a particular record type even if the CustomTextField__c has a bkank value. However, after the record is created, when a user edits the records, the CustomTextField__c must have a value to be able to save the record.

Now here's the strange behavior, this works perfectly for a user in the 'System Administrator' profile. However for other users the validation rule fails - the new Opportunity record is not created. The error is -

'We can't save this record because the “Opprtunities” process failed. Give your Salesforce admin these details. This error occurred when the flow tried to update records: FIELD_CUSTOM_VALIDATION_EXCEPTION: Please enter the CustomTextFieldValue'

I found the issue. I have a Process Builder to update a field in the Opportunity record 'after created or edited' for the Users in Non System Admin Profile.

    Yes, the clue was "tried to update records." P.S. If possible, you should change it to a Before Save Flow, which would eliminate the error and improve save performance significantly.
