Declare Index rules - Completing the New or Save As form
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.
Based on your use case, you use the Create, Save As, or Specialization form to create the record.Create a Declare Index rule by selecting

A Declare Index rule has two key parts:
|Apply to|| Select a concrete or abstract class that defines the scope of the indexes. At
runtime, a clipboard page of this class must be a top-level page. Concrete objects
in classes derived from this class are candidates for indexing under this rule.
Note these restrictions:
|Identifier|| Enter a name for this Declare Index rule. Begin the name with a letter and use
only letters, numbers, and a hyphen.
No other rules explicitly reference this Identifier value. However, based on class inheritance, a Declare Index rule named ByChild at one level in the class structure may override and therefore prevent execution of a Declare Index rule named ByChild at a higher level in the class structure.
