A configuration rule is comprised of a condition and an action. The condition is always evaluated first. if the condition is evaluated to be true (meaning it is met), then the rule is fired (meaning an action will take place).
Each rule begins with a basic template of 3 sections: Properties, Condition, and Action.
This section is where you will enter basic details about the rule. For example, the name, status and where it will be applied.
|Name||Enter the name of the rule. This is required.|
|Variable Name||Enter a variable name for the rule, but keep in mind it cannot be changed. This is required.|
|Description||Enter a description, if desired.|
Determine the status of the rule:
|Edit Start/End Dates||Select the box to open a date selector to set how long the rule will remain in the chosen status. If no duration is selected, the rule will remain on the selected status until you, or another FullAccess user, changes it.|
Upon checking this box, you are enabling AJAX functionality for the rule. This means that the rule will run without refreshing the page or requiring an action be performed.
Note: AJAX functionality is ONLY AVAILABLE for Hiding and Constraint rules.
The condition section allows you to select the logic that specifies when a rule should run. There are three options: Always True, Simple Condition and Advanced Condition.
The action section is where you select WHAT will happen if the condition is met. This is also where you will select where you'd like to apply the rule to; Configuration, Selection or Both. If you are creating a Recommendation or Constraint rule, this is also where you will select if you'd like to select action attributes by clicking the Add Attributes button or by a Table Lookup.

Configuration Rules Default Row Grouping to "1"
When a user selects a “Simple Condition” Configuration Rule Condition Type, a red error is not automatically placed around the Row Grouping when the “Add Row” button” is clicked.
The red error appears when an Attribute value is entered into the row and a Row Grouping is not entered.
