The ruleset list

While ruleset validation governs rule development and import, the ruleset list, also known as the ruleset stack, governs rule execution at run time. Because ruleset validation is enforced during development, the system does not need to validate the rulesets during run-time processing.

The ruleset list indicates the rulesets that are available to the application for a given operator session. The ruleset list is available in the operator profile (Operator > Profile). 


The order of the rulesets is important. The rule resolution algorithm refers to the order of the ruleset in the ruleset list. Rulesets at the top of the list take higher precedence. The ruleset list is assembled by Pega Platform when an operator logs in to the application. The process begins by locating the versioned application rule referenced on the access group of the operator.

Note: In rare configurations, the access group is provided as part of the requestor definition, organization, or division record.

The ruleset list consists of rulesets referenced on the application form.
