Context

Context contains several entities which may be useful during rule execution. Context is passed as an argument to action, onEnter and onExit functions. It contains:

  • An issue, which is an object of a current rule. Its origin varies depending on the rule type (see table below). If several issues become objects simultaneously, rules are executed for each issue separately in no specific order.

  • A currentUser, who is a subject of the current rule. It also varies depending on the rule type (see table below).

    Note that the change initiator is inherited. If execution of a scheduled rule triggers an on-change rule, the currentUser for the on-change rule is inherited from the scheduled rule.

  • All entities that are defined in Requirements.
