If your organization has the licensed software for IBM Security Orchestration & Automation, your playbook designer designs and implements the set of conditions, business logic and tasks used to respond to a case. This set is referred to as a playbook. These playbooks provide the application with the means to update the response to a case automatically, as the input changes or the case progresses.

The playbook determines which information is available to you, which tasks are assigned to you, and which actions you can take on any particular case. As the case changes, so can the assigned tasks and actions.
