About Decision Data rules
Decision data records offer a flexible mechanism for the type of input values that require frequent changes without having to adjust the strategy. Changes to the values of decision data records become directly available when you update the rule.
Decision data records can provide a simple list of values (typically, this is the case with global control parameters), or a set of values that are available in a specific context (for example, proposition parameters and channel centric parameters). The values of decision data records are typically defined by business users through the Decision Manager portal, but this functionality is not tied to the facilities in the portal and can be used in Dev Studio as well. The content of decision data records is defined by the extension points that system architects use to configure the data model and user interface supporting decision data.
The following tabs are available on this form:
Decision data records are referenced in strategies through the decision data component and proposition data component.
Use the Application Explorer or Records Explorer to access your application's decision data records.
Decision data records are part of the Decision category. A decision data rule is an instance of the Rule-Decision-DecisionParameters rule type.
- Completing the Decision Data rule form
- Completing the Data tab
Depending on the decision data class definition selected when creating the decision data rule, this tab displays the rule elements that business users can control. Saving the decision data rule allows you to test the changes to the decision data. Checking in the changes makes the changes available to all users. Typically, the changes to decision data are made available by system architects when activating a revision that contains the corresponding decision data rule.
- Completing the Form tab
Use the Form tab to configure the layout and behavior of the Decision Data rule form. By default, the form is automatically generated. You can manage the existing properties by adding, editing, and removing them from the decision data form. You can also create new properties.
- Decision data methods
Decision data records are designed to be run through a rule-based API. When you run a decision data record, you test the data that it provides.
- About Strategy rules
Strategies define the decision that is delivered to an application. The decision is personalized and managed by the strategy to reflect the interest, risk, and eligibility of an individual customer in the context of the current business priorities and objectives. The result of a strategy is a page (clipboard or virtual list) that contains the results of the components that make up its output definition.
Propositions are product offers that you present to your customers to achieve your business goals. Propositions can be tangible products like cars or mobile devices, or less tangible like downloadable music or mobile apps. You can view the existing propositions and create new ones on the Proposition management landing page.
