Short Overview

The Akeneo Rules Composer by Zorang provides a way for creating and editing rules in Akeneo Enterprise Edition using a user-friendly and intuitive UI seamlessly integrating with the default Rules functionality of Akeneo. Akeneo provides a way to view Rules but for creating and editing rules, the users would have to write rules in .yml files with a pre-defined syntax, but using this UI there is no need of writing complex files to create rules. The Rules Composer can be used to edit existing rules or create new ones.

Rules are a powerful feature in Akeneo which help automate the process of creating and maintaining product information. Often times the rules in Akeneo Enterprise Edition are created and maintained by non-technical and marketing/business users and the Akeneo Rules Composer by Zorang provides them a way to create/maintain rules without the need to write complicated .yml files. The Rules Composer integrates with Akeneo Rules page, for a seamless user experience. Users can launch the Rules Composer directly from the Akeneo Rules page for creating and/or editing rules. The look and feel of the Rules Composer is consistent with the rest of Akeneo UI. If you have existing rules created from the backend, you don’t have to worry, the new Rules Composer will enable you to edit them as well.

 

Following are the detailed features of Rules Composer:

  • Create and Edit Rules using the UI listing page in Akeneo
  • List categories and families as dropdown list for users to select
  • The attributes are listed as dropdown for users to select
  • The correct list of operators populate automatically depending upon the attribute type
  • Additional fields for different types of fields automatically show up depending on the attribute type
  • Can have multiple conditions and actions. Create and remove number of conditions and actions
  • Supports multiple locales, scope and currencies
  • Some knowledge of Rules Engine and how the rules work in Akeneo Enterprise Edition is required.
