Independent Rule Sets

  • Updated

Independent rule sets do not have an inherent associated entity context (unlike entity rule sets or context rule sets ). All entities and values that are referred to by rules in the rule set must be declared as parameters of the rule set.

Independent rule sets are always fired in explicit mode (the fire mode is always explicit and not- configurable)

Creating Independent Rule Sets

Users can create independent rule sets by right clicking on the "Independent Rule Sets" folder and selecting Insert -> Rule Set.



Specifies the name of the Rule Set. This name is used when executing the independent rule set from either an Execute Rule Set Action or irSDK.


Specifies decimal, Boolean, date, datetime, integer, text, and entity values to act as the inputs for the execution of the independent rule set. The "Auto Create" checkbox is enabled for only entity parameters. With "Auto Create" checked, an instance of the affected entity is created for the rule set automatically just before rule execution.

Note: Parameters are optional and not required for basic rule set execution.

Activated by Default

Designates whether or not this Rule Set will be considered in the initial rule dependency network during rule execution. Rule Sets CAN be re-activated during rule processing at runtime using various Activate Rule Set actions.


Specifies the list of Rules and Actions that will be executed for this Rule Set.
