Re-ordering Rule-sets and Rules

You can re-order your user-defined rule-sets within the Manage Consolidation Rules screen and re-order the rules within each user-defined rule-set. Changing the order of the rule-sets will change the order of execution of these rule-sets so it is possible to read data into a rule-set that has been written by a previously executed rule-set. Changing the sequence of the rules within the rule-set will have no impact.

The seeded rule-sets are always displayed before the user-defined rule-sets, and you cannot change their sequence.

Note:

When you change the sequence of the user-defined rule-sets, it might have an impact on the results if the source data for one or more of the rule-sets includes the current period Elimination data, and the source data of a subsequent rule-set includes the target data of a previously executed rule-set.

Guidelines for Re-ordering Rule-sets and Rules:

  • Sequence changes can be executed from all of the filtered views except the “Deployed” view (“All Rules”, “Un-deployed” and “Changed after deploy”). If a sequence change is attempted in the Deployed view, a warning message will be displayed that you cannot move a rule in the Deployed view.
  • The sequence of the user-defined rule-sets does not change until you deploy them.

  • The first custom rule-set cannot be moved up.

  • The last custom rule-set cannot be moved down.

  • The first custom rule in a rule-set cannot be moved up.

  • The last custom rule in a rule-set cannot be moved down.

  • If deployed user-defined rules are re-sequenced, the rules that have changed sequence will change to “Changed but un-deployed” status and the rule-set will change to “Changed but un-deployed” status. If a sequence change involves only one or more un-deployed or changed rules, then there will be no status changes. If a sequence change involves both deployed and un-deployed or changed rules, then the status changes will be based only on the re-sequencing of the deployed rules.
