Managing rules


Managing rules 

In this topic we review how to change parameter values within the rule editor. 

We estimate that this will take 3 minutes to complete.

Detailed Explanation 

The Rule Editor lets you view the rules that have parameters that can be changed. There are some rules in the background, and if they cannot be changed, they do not appear here. 

Interaction 1 Click the Rule Set dropdown button.

In this scenario we are going to select the cabin rules and change the amount of rest a cabin crew member gets after an absence code.

Interaction 2 Click the Rule - FFT-Cabin-Roles list item.

Interaction 1 Click the Advance button.

The rule we want to change (PairingRestAfterAbsenceCodes) is not listed on the first screen of rules. 

Interaction 1 Click Pairing-RestAfterAbsenceCodes.

Interaction 2 Click the Edit button.

Let's give them an extra hour of rest. 

Interaction 1 Click the RestHours input field.

Interaction 1 Press the Backspace KeySymbol:8 key.

Increase rest hours to 11

Trigger 2 Enter 1 into the RestHours field.

Interaction 2 Click the Save button.

Interaction 1 Click Pairing-DomicileRestWithTable.

Interaction 1 Click the Edit button.


If you encounter an input field like the examples for days 30 and 31 below, then the easiest way of making the changes is in an external editor, such as Windows Notepad, Microsoft Word or Excel. Copy the text out, make the changes and then paste it back in again. 

Interaction 1 Click the Cancel button.


Congratulations! You have successfully reviewed how to change parameter values within the rule editor.
