The declarative network is an internal data structure that defines the relationship between properties and whose value is automatically (declaratively) calculated based on changes to other property values. You can configure and visualize complex relationships using the Declarative Network display, which shows the target property and all potential inputs that might affect its final value. You can review relationships that depend on forward chaining or backward chaining.
From the Declarative Network display, you can quickly access declare expression rules and the properties that they reference. You can also use the display to unit test a Declare Expression rule.
This feature requires the Adobe Flash Player plug-in.
