Defining Simple Syntax Rules

You can assign simple syntax rules to steps in a business process model.

  1. From the Tools menu, select Rule Manager.
  2. Click Add.
  3. In the Name field, type a name that describes the rule.
    For example, if you are creating choice within your process model that determines what step to take if the total amount in a purchase order is greater than or less than $10,000, you might define a rule named TotalPO.
  4. In the Expression field, type the syntax, and then click OK.
    Following the example in step 3, the expression might be document/total > 10000.
  5. Repeat these tasks until you finish defining simple syntax rules.

You can now assign rules you have created to steps in a business process model. See Assigning Rules and Conditions in Business Process Models.
