Understanding Business Rule Attributes

Business rule attributes define the characteristics of the rule: its name, classification, status, business description, and the like. You can view rule attributes in the righthand pane of the Rules window.

Tip: Use the Technical Description, Business Description, Audit, Classification, Status, and Transition attributes for a business function or rule set to indicate that a value applies for all the rules included in the business function or rule set.

You can propagate rule attribute values to one or more rules, and you can use a variety of methods to batch edit rule attributes:

You can modify attribute characteristics and valid values, and you can create custom attributes suited to your particular needs.
