Creating a decision table to ingest customer data

Suggest edit Updated on September 21, 2021

Create a decision table to define a set of conditions under which the system runs a specific ingestion process using the appropriate data flows, or reports an error.

The goal of this procedure is to complete the following tasks:

  1. Create the following rule with sample parameter values:
    Rule typeRule nameRulesetClass
    Decision tableUPlusIngestionProcessTypeUPlusCDH-Rules:01-01-01UPlus-Work-Ingestion
    Important: When you configure this rule in your system, use the values that are appropriate for your system.
  2. Add the rule to the Process type? decision shape in the process flow in the Ingestion case type.
Before you begin: Create the Ingestion case type. For more information, see Creating a case type to ingest customer data.

The starting point for this procedure is the process flow that you added to the Ingestion case type, as shown in the following figure:

  4. On the New tab, configure the following parameters:
    1. In the Label field, enter UPlusIngestionProcessType.
    2. In the Apply to and Add to ruleset fields, leave the default values.
  5. Click Create and open.
  6. On the Table tab, create the following decision table:
    Tip: The decision table uses the data flows and properties that you created earlier.
