Rule Flow Designer

About the Rule Flow designer

In this section, you can easily combine your rules and create extensive automatic decisions. We support DecisionTables, Scripting rules, DecisionTrees and even RuleFlows as RuleFlow input.
The example shown above is a rule flow that decides whether to lend to a given client and what the tax will be. (bank)

Rule Sidebar

When a rule is selected, its sidebar is displayed.
In the sidebar is displayed:
  • Rule - the name of the actual rule in the box. By clicking on it you can change the rule in a box
  • Version - the actual version of the used rule. By default, the latest version is chosen. By clicking on it, you can specify the version, that you want to use
  • Data Mapping - by clicking on it, it opens Data Mapping
  • Rule Detail - by clicking on it, it opens rule designer (the actual rule) in a new browser tab
  • Global Variable - it is used for mapping in a Rule Flow. By clicking on it you can rename it
  • Rule model - displays input and output model. Correct mapped inputs are green and non-mapped or wrongly mapped inputs are red

Debug mode is used to make it easier to test your Rule Flow when creating it. The debug button
is on the Test Bench shown on the bottom of the Rule Flow designer. In Rule Flow, debug mode is turned on by default, by clicking on it the user turns it off.

When debug is enabled:

  • Information about inputs and outputs is written to the debug console.
