Declaratives, Decisions, Validation
Declarative, decision, and validation rules help automate key points in business processes.
Declarative rules allow you to set up calculations which occur when one of the values used in the calculation changes. The result of one declarative rule can trigger another declarative rule in a process known as chaining.
Decision rules compare criteria defined in the rule against properties in the work item, and perform an action when the criteria are met. Decision rules allow some decisions in a business process to be made automatically, eliminating manual steps.
Validation rules compare incoming information from any source (users, files, or external systems) against criteria defined in the rule. If the incoming information does not meet the criteria, the user is typically prompted to review or correct the input. This ensures the quality of information and improves downstream processes.
