  2. On the Select screen of the Export wizard, in the General folder, select File System.
  3. Click Next.

    Important
    It is up to the rule template developer to ensure that the templates that they develop do not have issues with name collision. For example, function names, Java method signatures, and facts should have different names even if they are in different templates, because a rule author can create rules based on multiple templates. Names should not be duplicated and it must be communicated to the rules author which templates/versions to use, and in which combination.

GRS/Composer Process Flow

Basic Relationships and Flow

GRS101.png

One.png Create a template using the GRDT.

Two.png Create a rule package in GRAT and deploy it to the GRE.

Three.png The deployed rule package arrives to GRE and awaits evaluation requests from Composer's Business Rules block.

Four.png Composer's Business Rules block sends evaluation requests to GRE.

Five.png GRE returns the results in a variable to Composer's Business Rule block.

Variations

It is possible to:

  • Create a template from scratch in GRDT and publish to GRAT.
  • Import a template project into GRDT, optionally make some modifications, publish to GRAT (for example, the sample from Genesys Proactive Engagement).
  • Import a template XML file into GRAT (eg, sample from Conversation Rules or iWD) and use it directly. If you want to modify the template, you can import into GRDT using the GRS Server Explorer window, modify, the publish it to GRAT.
