Working with the Application Visualization Display

The bottom half of the Application Summary tab organizes the application into a rotating graphical display utilizing the Six R's (Receive, Resolve, Respond, Research, Report, and Route).

For each of the Six R's there is a callout detailing the the rule categories associated with it and how many of each rule type is in that category.

Clicking on a rule category in the callout displays a summary view listing every rule type in that category. Expanding a rule type shows all instances of that rule type.

Rule Types tab

The Rule Types tab displays a heatmap showing all rules found in the application, grouped by rule category and rule type.

Left-clicking on a rule category displays a summary view listing every rule type in that category. By expanding a rule type, you can view all instances of that rule type.

Right-clicking on a rule category displays a list view based on how the heatmap is shaded. For example, If the heatmap is shaded according to the number of checked out rules, all rules in that rule category that have been checked out display.

You can change the shading of the heatmap by selecting an option in the Shaded by drop down list. You can shade the heatmap by:

  • the number of recently updated rules
  • the number of checked out rules
  • the number of warnings

You can add or remove rule categories and RuleSets in the heatmap by clicking Filter. This causes the Configuration Dialog popup to display.

Check or uncheck the RuleSets or rule categories you want to add or remove in the heatmap. Click Apply to save your changes.

The Rules References tab consists of a heatmap showing all referenced rules in the application, grouped by rule category and rule type.

Left-clicking on a rule category displays a summary view report listing every rule type in that category. By expanding a rule type, you can view all instances of that rule.

Right-clicking on rule category opens a SmartInfo popup window displaying all rules that are referenced in the application and the number of times they are referenced.
