Context

Context contains a number of entities which may be useful during a 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 rule type (see a table below). If several issues become objects at the same time, rules are executed for each issue separately in no specific order.

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