    • 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.

    1. Setup webhooks to call them when the rule is triggered.
    2. Setup custom functions to be executed when the rule is triggered.
