Why Use Rule Assembly Language?

Rule Assembly Language (RAL) is intended for those users who are more comfortable working in a programming environment rather than using templates. Those with experience using this language in previous releases can continue to use it in this release.

In many cases, a combination of RAL and rule templates can be effectively employed as follows.

  1. Use the existing templates to create basic configuration rules.
  2. Create specialized templates and use them to create rules to handle configuration areas that are similar.
  3. Use RAL to create highly complex or unusual rules not easily handled by templates.
