Rules Engine Platform consists of Logical rules which are the heart of the Rules Engine Platform, which are used for defining the rules for Page, Posts, Categories, Widgets, Themes, Language and URL Redirection. A logical rules is defined using 12 categories like User Role, User Profile, Pages, Posts Geo location etc, 28 subcategories like Email, Registered Date, Country, Date and Time etc and with 9 like conditions like equals, not equal, greater than etc.
Please Note : This video is recorded Using RulesEngine Plugin and same feature will be applied to RulesEngine Platform too except the child rules which are shown in the video.
Many more are categories and subcategories are planned in feature release.
Logical rules also provide two important developer friendly features:
- Define custom hook : Developers can define a method in their code and add this method in logical rules, which will be called by rules engine plugin once the rule is satisfied. Hook can be further used to develop customer features like sending email, show important messages in site.
- Logical rule status : Access the evaluated value of the logical rule using the utility method in the code.
See below table of categories, sub categories corresponding values for defining logical rule. We can combine the rule criteria using logical “AND” “OR” logically separate them using “BRACKETS” to define more complex rule.
