Editing Rule Attributes

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 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. 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:

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