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