Creating a regular expression rule
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 regular expression rule by clicking. Enter an identifier that starts with a letter and uses only letters, digits and underscore characters.

Regular Expression rules support operation of the Rule Security Analyzer by defining patterns of text that when found in the code being examined, cause the analyzer to report potential security issues.
