Business Rules

Business Rules

Business rules are used to automate certain actions for requests or records that fulfill certain incoming criteria. Some of the actions that can be automated using business rules include assigning groups, support reps, status, and priority, besides making a note public/private or pausing system notifications for specific users.

 

You can now create business rules for requests, and also for notes and notifications. However, there are specific differences in the conditions and actions that can be configured for notes and notifications.

Business rules are categorized and organized under rule groups. You can configure a rule group for all related groups, such as rules for category, priority, assets, etc. Rule groups are incredibly useful because you can restrict or apply only specific rules for an incoming request.

To create a new group, click Rule Group. On the displayed page, provide a name and description and click Add.
