Add a namespace to a rule

A namespace is a hierarchical definition that defines the context in which a rule is applied.

Examples:

You can use namespaces to define that a rule is applied for only new business and not for renewals.

You can use namespaces to define the following:

  • Line > Personal Auto > Drivers
  • Transaction Type > New Business
  • Location > CA

Note: When you add a line of business (LOB) as a namespace, you need to contact the Rules team so they can connect the namespace to the LOB.

To add a namespace to a rule:

  1. In the BriteCore menu, select Rules.
  2. On the Rules screen, select Projects, and then navigate to and select the rule you want to add a namespace to.
  3. On the rule screen, in the Namespaces box, select the edit icon .
  4. In the Rule General Info dialog box, under Namespaces, select Add category.
  5. In the Add category dialog box, complete the following steps:
    1. In the Category Name box, type the name of the new namespace.
    2. In the Value box, type the defining value of the namespace, and then select Confirm.
  6. Select Save.

Example namespaces:

Namespace: Line: BOP
Category:

Value: BOP

Namespace: State: MO
