Collection rules

Records can be created in various ways. You can add a new record to your application or copy an existing one. You can specialize existing rules by creating a copy in a specific ruleset, against a different class or (in some cases) with a set of circumstance definitions. You can copy data instances but they do not support specialization because they are not versioned.

Create a Collection rule by selecting Collection from the Decision category.

Rule resolution

When searching for instances of this rule type, the system uses full rule resolution which:

  • Filters candidate rules based on a requestor's ruleset list of rulesets and versions
  • Searches through ancestor classes in the class hierarchy for candidates when no matching rule is found in the starting class
  • Finds circumstance-qualified rules that override base rules
  • Finds time-qualified rules that override base rules
