About requirement rules

Updated on January 18, 2022

Purpose

Requirement rules (Rule-Requirement) control the attributes and behavior of the Requirement objects that are created at runtime and linked to a stage in the process loan flow of a parent case. The parent case can be any work object (that is, any concrete class derived from Work-).

Requirement Rules are referenced in RequirementSet rules.

Access

Use the Application Explorer to access activity rules that apply to the work types in your application. Use the Records Explorer to list all Requirement rules available to you.

Category

Requirement rules are part of the Requirement category. They are instances of the Rule- Requirement class.

Completing the new or Save As form

A requirement rule has two key parts.

FieldDescription
LabelEntera name for this Requirement, starting with a letter and using only alphanumeric and dash characters. Choose a name that is unique within the Applies To class. The name must be a valid Java identifier.

The length of the class name plus the length of the Requirement Name cannot exceed 128 bytes.

Applies ToIdentify the class to which this rule applies.

Typically,the Requirement rule is saved in a Data- class that also contains the Verification Section rules, Validation rules, Processing Flow rules as well as the various properties that must be passed to the parent case.

The classes that you enter here depend on the ruleset you select. On the Restrictions tab of theClass form, a class rule may limit rules applying to that class to belong to one of an explicit list of rulesets.
