A Ruleset Action performs some form of operation on data during a transformation run.
- from a source document, multiply quantity by a price and write the result to a field in a target document;
- automatically remove dashes from a phone number in trading partner data when writing it to your own back-end files.
The Actions panel displays groups of selectable Ruleset Actions used to perform some type of operation on your data. Group types reflect the general usage of the Actions within. Expanding each folder displays multiple Actions that can be added to a Rule.
Two ways to add Actions to a Rule
- Click the New Rule (or Composite) button to display the list of all available Actions, and then double-click the Action to select it from the list.
- Drag an Action directly from the Action panel to a specific Rule, or to the empty field in the Rule section of the Properties view.
The two methods are shown in this example to create a Rule with the RawMoveAction (supported in the new engine only).
