I have written a plugin triggered on triggerProfileUpdate($user,$data,$changed,$isNew) and have noticed that the trigger is being dispatched before the data is updated ( i have checked the code to prove this).

The same is true of the field level triggers. Is this by design or is it a bug?

I want to sync the updates to a set of tables for another extension. If triggered pre database update then the update could fail and mean my sync was incorrect to happen as the tables are no longer synced.

Thoughts please.

To test if plugin is triggered you can add this simple code at the start of function triggerProfileUpdate:
echo 'Works';
if plugin is triggered then the problem is in your code. Otherwise to check this we need to see source code and your configuration (so we need FTP and backend access)

Please check:
- Plugin is enabled in Administration->Extensions->Plugins
- You made some changes in your profile, the function triggerProfileUpdate will be triggered only if there is some changes.
