Defining rules with Rule Wizards : Using the New Rule wizard

Using the New Rule wizard

The New Rule wizard provides a blank, generic rule set that enables you to define a new rule module for the application or to a selected Activity workstep to meet your specific requirements.
To apply a new generic rule:
1. From the General category, drag the New Rule () icon to the Content pane to apply the rule to the process or to an Activity workstep in the active process template, to open the New Rule wizard.
2. Click Next to continue.
3. From the Module Type page, select the Rule Module option to create rule files, rule groups and rule modules, or select the Data Module option to create a dynamic map structure that provides quick and easy access to values in infopads and persistent maps that are contained in this map structure. Click Next to continue.
4. In the Name box, type the name of the rule module to which the new rule will be assigned. Click Next to continue.
5. In the File Name box, modify (if required) the name of the rule file name or click the adjoining ellipsis button to change the location where the rule file is saved.
6. Click Finish to complete the new rule and apply it to the process or selected workstep.
