Conditionally executes an expression based on the parent and siblings of the current business object. A sibling of the current business object is one that is also related to the parent business object by the relationship specified by the parentRelationship parameter.
Executes the expression defined by the trueAction expression for each sibling of the current business object that is selected by the siblingPredicate parameter. The parentRelationship parameter identifies a parent (associated) business object of the current business object. If the parentPredicate evaluated for this business object is false, this function returns false and does nothing else. Otherwise, it evaluates the siblingPredicate expression for each sibling of the current business object
IfAllSiblings(parentRelationship, parentPredicate, siblingPredicate, trueAction)

|1. Except when this field appears on a form or is triggered by such a field.|
|parentRelationship||Identifies a parent (associated) object of the current object. A relationship specifier of the form object#subobject.tag.|
(Optional) Boolean expression. The predicate of the parent business object. If the predicate returns false, this function returns false and does nothing else. This predicate is executed on the server.
|siblingPredicate||Boolean expression. A predicate of the child business objects related to the parent business object by the reverse relationship of the parentRelationship parameter.|
If the value of the siblingPredicate parameter is true, this is the expression that is evaluated for each sibling.
The following example checks to see if the last task in an incident is closed and sends a message if it is:
"$(Status != 'Closed' && Status != 'Resolved')",
"$(Status == 'Completed' || Status == 'Canceled')",
'Task belongs to an incident with no other unfinished tasks. Select [Yes] to set incident to resolved, select [No] to create a new task, or select [Cancel] to cancel the task save operation.',
In this example, the current business object is an incident. The function checks to see if the incident is closed or resolved. If it is not, it checks to see if all of the children (for example, tasks) of the incident are completed or canceled. If the incident is not closed or resolved, and all of the tasks for that incident are either completed or canceled, it executes the PromptAndExecuteAction function which displays this message: "Task belongs to an incident with no other unfinished tasks...."
This function then returns a value of true.
