Declare Expression form - Completing the History tab

Updated on May 27, 2008

This presentation is part of the Declarative Expressions Self-Study Course.


The History tab should be completed for every rule you work on.  You should not consider your rule complete until it has been properly documented.

The Full Description and Usage fields are self-explanatory.

Click the History Details button to see the Save history of this rule in a new window.  From the History window, you can:

  • Review the saved history of the rule
  • Review older, historical copies (for RuleSets that use check-out)
  • Restore an older version by clicking the pencil icons
  • Add a memo

Optionally, you can associate a set of names and values with a rule. These names and values can document development decisions or provide a means of finding rules later.

Using this optional facility, you can associate an array of arbitrary Name and Value pairs with the rule.

You can also upload an entire file (for example, a Word document file, Visio VSD file, or a JPG image containing a diagram) as the value of a Custom Field. Process Commander links the uploaded file permanently with this rule.
