Can you check what is the scope of the business rule if it is set to particular form then it only triggers on that form. If you want it across forms then set it to all forms. If you want it to trigger on server side then set the scope to Entity.
Have you changed any details of the field after activation of Business rule. Just to double check once again deactivate the business rule, validate and activate it back .
if this answers your question mark it as verified and give it a thumbs up
