Creating KYC Type rules

Updated on June 30, 2021

After the data class structure is established and KYC Item response properties have been created and saved to the appropriate class, you can create new KYC Type rules or copy the existing ones for customization. KYC Type rules reference one or more KYC Item response properties, store their data values, and define how the KYC Item is presented on the case user interface.

Note: A newly created KYC Type or a version of the type is available for use application-wide, however you must be aware of the following scenarios.

  • The KYC Types is available for application-wide use after they are checked in. KYC Types in personal rulesets are not processed by the run time engine.
  • These new KYC Types are applied to new cases by default. For existing cases that already have KYC Types applied to them, these new KYC types and versions are only available when the re-evaluation routine runs, which is triggered only from specific questions.
  • Any KYC Types that have been discontinued because of applicability or changes in rule availability are available in the case until the re-evaluation routine runs.
  • KYC Type availability is dependent on data in certain declare indexes defined on the KYC Type rule. An operator who has access to the KYC application stack must import KYC Types from a RAP, so that the declare indexes can be generated at the point of import and the KYC Types are visible to the engine.
  1. In Dev Studio, click LaunchKYC Rule Manager.
  2. In the KYC Rule Manager, in the Types explorer, select a group, for example, Global, to which you want to add a new type or types.
