About Proposition Filter rules


Proposition filters allow you to define the validity, eligibility, and relevancy criteria for a set of strategy results (propositions). The filters set the proposition's behavior to true (offer the proposition) or false (do not offer the proposition).

You can define logical expressions in the Proposition Filter rule with the When rule and the Strategy rule instances, or directly use properties from the top level class of the proposition filter. A proposition filter uses the page count that is provided by a strategy, instead of the strategy results. When a strategy results in the creation of one or more pages, its output is interpreted as true. When there are no results, the output is interpreted as false.

Proposition filter records are synchronized with propositions, including versioned and unversioned propositions. Any changes in the associated decision data instances are reflected in the proposition filter records.

Used in

Proposition filters are used in strategies in the Filter component.


You can use the Records Explorer to list all the Proposition Filter rules that are available in your application.


Proposition filters are part of the Decision category. A proposition filter is an instance of the Rule-Decision-PropositionFilter type.

  • Proposition Filters
  • Configuring the specific criteria for the Proposition Filter rule

    Set the validity, eligibility, and relevancy criteria for individual propositions. You can use these criteria with the criteria that are defined in the default behavior, or you can use the specific criteria to override the default behavior.

  • Configuring the default criteria for the Proposition Filter rule

    Set the default behavior configuration to define how a Proposition Filter rule processes propositions that do not match any specific filter criteria.

  • Testing Proposition Filter rules with audience simulations

    Optimize the performance of your Proposition Filter rules by running audience simulation tests when you create or update a proposition filter.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Simulation Testing landing page

    By running simulation tests, you can examine the effect of business changes on your decision management framework.

  • Propositions

    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.
