Rules Tab of the Decision Property Editor

Note: For information about rules, see Rule Overview.
Element Description
Rule Click a row in the Rule column to open the rule menu. All rules that are defined for the application are listed at the bottom of the menu.

To map an existing rule to the transition, select the rule from the menu.

To create a new rule for this transition, select (New rule). The rule editor opens.

One transition must be mapped to the "Otherwise" rule. This transition is executed if none of the other rules evaluates as "true."

Important: The rules are evaluated in the order in which they are listed here, so it is critical that the order is correct. (See Move up, Move down later in this table.)
Transition The outgoing transitions from this decision.
To state Shows the target state for this transition.
Status Shows whether the transition is enabled or disabled. Disabled transitions are highlighted in a light gray color on the workflow editor.
Hide disabled transitions Removes disabled transitions from the Transition column.
Override transition ordering Sub-workflows only: Enables the Move up and Move down buttons so you can change the transition order in a sub-workflow without changing the order in the parent workflow.
Show rule summaries Expands the area under each row and provides a textual summary of the rule.
Show transition summaries Expands the area under each row and shows the form the transition uses, the state the workflow moves to after the transition is executed, and other information about the transtition (if any).
Open rule Opens the rule editor for the selected rule.
Move up, Move down Changes the order in which rules are evaluated.
Note: After you map the "Otherwise" rule to a transition, it is moved to the bottom of the list, because that transition is taken if no other rule evaluates as "true."
