About product rules

Updated on July 8, 2022

Use the Application Packaging wizard to package an application in a product rule for export to a .zip file or migration to another server.

Use the Records Explorer to list all the product rules that are available to you.

Product rules are instances of the Rule-Admin-Product class. They belong to the SysAdmin category. Product rules are sometimes informally called RAP rules.

Product rules are rarely referenced by other rules. When searching for a Product rule, the system does the following:

  • Filters candidate rules based on a requestor's ruleset list of rulesets and versions.
  • Finds circumstance-qualified rules that override base rules with the same key.

Class-based inheritance does not apply. Time-qualified resolution features are not available for product rules.

The product rule includes the following items:

  • Application classes
  • Rules
  • Data
  • Ruleset history
  • Data table content

By default, the product rule contains instances of the following data classes, which are part of the application you are packaging:

User Database

The wizard also gathers rule history and data table contents. However, it does not gather the data instances that your application might use from other classes. To include these data instances to your packaged application, explicitly add the instances.

The wizard generates a product rule with the same name as the application.
