Use the Rule Creation connector to modify or update a rule. When required, you can edit multiple rules at the same time.

Disabling a rule is not required to edit a rule. When you edit a rule, you are editing a local copy until you save and activate the rule. If the rule was enabled when you added your modifications, it will continue to be enabled while you work on the new version. When you save the new version and click Activate Rules, the manager replaces the original rule with the new version.

  1. Open the Build > Rules view.
  2. In the Rules Categories & Tags pane, maximize the category that contains the rules you want to edit.

  3. In the Rules grid, select the rule (or rules) you want to edit.
  4. To edit a single rule, click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/0K0/Button-Gear_17x14.png next to the rule and select Edit. To edit multiple rules, click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/LEMUserGuide_MT/0B0/0K0/Button-Gear(Gray)_16x13.png in the Rules toolbar and select Edit.

    The Rule Creation screen displays with your selected rule. If you multiple rules, they display as cascaded windows on the screen.

  5. Edit your rules as required. See Add a rule for information about each selection in the window.
  6. Click Save to save your rule changes.

Edit a locked rule

If a rule is locked, another user is currently editing the rule. You can open the rule in read-only mode to see the rule details or break the lock and take control over the rule. The other user will not be able to save any changes to the rule.
