You can only configure pipelines in an On Exit event. This is because pipelines can call external systems, change external sources of information, send emails, etc. As this may take time, it is not recommended to do it in an On Save event; which is why it is not allowed.

 

4. If you had previously configured a pipeline, select the one that you want to use from the list and then click ok.
