Rule Messages Admin Screen

Although the Messages Admin Screen gives access to every message in the user interface, the Rule Messages screen allows you to easily create and edit the long and short messages associated with Chrome River's business rules without needing the message key or searching through every message for the desired text. This is also where you may add a URL to an existing Compliance rule message.


2. Select or create a changeset.

A changeset is just a way to make changes to the user interface that can be tracked and easily reversed, if necessary. You may select an existing changeset (e.g., one you've already created containing related changes you'd like to make) or create a new one. See Create and Publish Changesets for complete details.

3. Select the following:

  • Rule Type: Compliance, Submit Compliance or Approval Routing
  • Language

4. Click VIEW.

Add Rule Messages

1. Click ADD MESSAGE to create a new rule message.

2. On the Create Message screen enter the following:

  • Code: The unique code associated with this rule message.
  • Short Description: This acts like a headline.
  • Long Description: This is a description of the rule.

3. By default, the ADD TO ALL LANGUAGES box is checked. If your organization is configured to display multiple languages, this will create the new message in every language file. You may then replace the short and long descriptions with the appropriate translations.

4. Click SAVE.
