Description

Would Workflow Rule/Process Builder  on Contact/Opportunity object trigger, when the Account ownership is changed and as result the Opportunity/Contact owner changes?

Resolution

The  Workflows,Process Builder and triggers written based on  criteria of ownership change of Opportunity/Contact object are NOT executed in the scenario where the Account owner is changed, which in turn changes Opportunity/Contact Owner.  If you need the Opportunity/Contact logic to fire, you would need to call or include that logic in the Account trigger.
