Business Rules for Bugs

Business Rules allows you to organize the bugs more efficiently by setting criteria that match your project requirement. Business Rules are applied to bugs based on the rule list order, when there are multiple business rules. You can add, edit and deactivate a business rule.

You can add as many business rules as desired for bugs.

  1. Navigate to  > Bug Tracker > Business Rules.
  2. Click Add Rule.
  3. Enter Name and select the trigger for the rule to Execute On.

  4. Click Next.
  5. Choose the Criteria based on the trigger and click Next.
    • Click    to add a criteria.
    • Multiple criteria can be added. Criteria for execution can be managed using AND and OR expressions.
    • AND: All criteria must be true for executing the business rule.
    • OR: Either one of the criteria must be true.
    • Criteria Pattern can be edited to get the desired result.
    • Check the Execute the next business rule box if you want to execute the next business rule in the Business Rule list view.

  6. Select the field and enter the values to update when the business rule is triggered in the Actions tab.
    1. Setup webhooks to call them when the rule is triggered.
    2. Setup custom functions to be executed when the rule is triggered.
