Syncing a rule to Author Studio from the catalog

  3. The rule will now appear in the Rule Application List. Once you have synced the rule the first time, it will communicate seamlessly after that. However, if you change the name of the rule application in irAuthor, you will need to use the Sync Catalog feature again to see the name change in Author Studio.
