Before a rule will be useful to other members of your organization, you need to define its attributes: what task the rule
performs, whether it has been approved, the last time it was validated, and so forth. You can view rule attributes in the
righthand pane of the
Interactive Analysis Rules window.
Tip: Use the
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. Use the
Business Area attribute of a business function to classify business functions as members of a still broader category of activity, such
as Customer Management.
You can propagate rule attribute values to one or more rules, and you can use a variety of methods to batch edit rule attributes:
- Code Search lets you generate business rules in a specified rule set with predefined attributes.
- The search facility in the Rules pane lets you locate existing rules with common characteristics, which you can then modify
in bulk with the Change Rules feature.
You can modify attribute characteristics and valid values, and you can create custom attributes suited to your particular
