False Loop Detected in Formula

I have a formula that has been flagged as an infinite loop but I don’t understand why since the only reference to itself is in the 1-to-1 self-related parent entity.

Am I missing something?

  • The field is on a “Page” database
  • “Parent Page” is a 1-to-1 relationship to another Page.
  • Slug is a regular text field

If it is theoretically possible that the field could be a self-reference, that is probably the reason.

My guess is that you have a snake that bites its own tail.
e.g. A - B - C - A

I triple checked everything and while you could technically have a parent be its own child, I didn’t find examples of it happening.

But anyways, it just started working again out of the blue so will cross my fingers that it stays that way!
