Records can be created in various ways. You can add a new record to your application or copy an existing one. You can specialize existing rules by creating a copy in a specific ruleset, against a different class or (in some cases) with a set of circumstance definitions. You can copy data instances but they do not support specialization because they are not versioned.
An Identifier is a key part of the control. Enter the name of the control beginning with a letter and follow the rules for a Java identifier.
When searching for control rules, the system:
- Filters candidate rules based on a requester's ruleset list of rulesets and versions
- Finds circumstance-qualified rules that override base rules
- Finds time-qualified rules that override base rules
The class hierarchy is not relevant to rule resolution for control rules.
