Managing rule sets
Rule sets logically group one or more rules. Rule sets can be used in span actions (for example, Deploy to Active) to make configuration changes and enabled for real-time auditing.
When BMC Network Automation is installed for the first time, a sample set of industry-standard security-related rule sets and associated rules are imported to your database.
The sample rules help you get started to define and organize your own rules for your organization. If you are upgrading BMC Network Automation, the sample rules are not imported but are available in the server installation directory (BCAN_HOME\public\bmc\bca-networks\rules). At any time, you can import the sample rules using the Rule Import task.
