One of the key benefits of Alfresco is the ability to define rules that affect content within a space. These rules can be used to provide creative solutions to automation and management of content. Rules are applied when content moves in or out of a space and may also apply to content directly in the space or in sub spaces.
A rule is made up of three main elements:
The conditions on the content for the rule to match
The actions that are performed on the content
The type of rule it is
Any number of conditions and actions may be defined in a rule.
