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 and upload them, but using this UI, there is no need of writing complex files to create rules.
In General Properties, define rule name, priority and the categories and families to match. Akeneo Rules Composer provides validations and multi-select drop down for categories and families, so that the users don’t have to type and there are no chances for errors. The UI provides the users an intuitive way of defining rules.
Akeneo rules can have multiple conditions on which the products can be matched for applying the rules. The Field Properties section allows the user to create multiple condition one by one. The values change depending on attribute type for selected attributes. The operators are shown as drop down and other fields like value, currency, locale and scope are all shown to the user based on attribute type.
Just like conditions, Akeneo supports having multiple actions. The user can define multiple actions one by one. Once they choose one of the four actions – set, add, remove or copy, the rest of the fields show up depending on action. The locale, scope, currency fields show up depending on attribute selected so the user only has to fill the fields which are required.
