Rules define the business logic of your applications. You can create rules to interact with a process, send notifications, integrate your application with third party systems, and so on.
Before you begin
Before you create rules, ensure that you have created a project and deployed it in BMC Helix Innovation Studio. For more information, see Creating a Project using Maven and the Archetype.
Application business analysts can customize the objects developed in their own applications and that are marked customizable by the administrator, but cannot customize the objects developed in com.bmc.arsys in Best Practice Customization mode. For example, objects in core BMC applications like Foundation, Approval, and Assignment cannot be customized in Best Practice Customization mode.

- Select the application in which you want to create a rule.
