Table 3-8 Rulesets and Ruleset Extension Points

Ruleset/Ruleset Extension Point Functionality

APPROVE_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG

APPROVE_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG_EXT

This is an empty ruleset that enables another cartridge to readily override it.

The ruleset is called when you approve a service configuration, and it runs before the UIM approve service configuration logic.

AUTOMATE_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG

AUTOMATE_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG_EXT

This is an empty ruleset that enables another cartridge to readily override it.

The ruleset is called when you automate a service configuration, and it runs before any custom rulesets that may be in place to automate a service configuration.

CANCEL_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG

CANCEL_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG_EXT

This is an empty ruleset that enables another cartridge to readily override it.

The ruleset is called when you cancel a service configuration, and it runs before the UIM cancel service configuration logic.

COMPLETE_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG

COMPLETE_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG_EXT

This is an empty ruleset that enables another cartridge to readily override it.

The ruleset is called when you complete a service configuration, and it runs before the UIM complete service configuration logic.

VALIDATE_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG

VALIDATE_DATA_NETWORKING_SERVICE_CONFIG_EXT

This is an empty ruleset that enables another cartridge to readily override it.

The ruleset is called when you validate a service configuration, and it runs instead of the UIM service configuration validation logic.
