Creating Correspondence Fragment 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 correspondence fragment rule by selecting Correspondence Fragment from the Process category.

Key parts:

A correspondence fragment rule has two key parts:

Field Description
Stream Name Enter a name of your choice for this fragment. Begin the name with a letter and use only letters, numbers, the ampersand character, and hyphens.
Correspondence Type Identify a correspondence type in which this fragment is to be available. (A correspondence type is a key to a Rule-CorrType instance.)

Rule resolution

When searching for a correspondence fragment rule, the system:

  • Filters candidate rules based on a requestor's RuleSet list of RuleSets and versions
  • Finds circumstance-qualified rules that override base rules with the same key
  • Finds time-qualified rules that override base rules
