Enable a rule set to turn it on and disable a rule set to turn it off.
When you disable a rule set, the activity that is currently in progress is unaffected. The rule set finishes processing the current instance, but does not respond to the next trigger event.
For example, if a rule set is disabled while it is refining and imposing pages from a file put into a job hot folder, the rule set finishes the imposition. It does not process any files put into the hot folder after the rule set was disabled.
- Open Rule Set Manager in Job Finder or Job Manager.
- If required, click the Change Environment button to change between the system and job environments.
To enable a rule set in a specific job, you need to work in the job environment. To enable a rule set system-wide, you need to work in the system environment.
- In Rule Set Manager, perform any of the following steps:
- To enable a rule set, in the Rule Set Library list, select one or more rule sets, and click Enable.
- To disable a rule set, in the Enabled Rule Sets list, select one or more rule sets, and click Disable.
- To disable a job rule set in specific jobs, select the job rule set, and click Disable In. Select In all jobs where it is enabled, or select In selected jobs and then select the check boxes next to the specific jobs. Click OK.
- If you are working with a system rule, type your user name and password when prompted. Use the same user name and password that you use to log on to the Prinergy system.
- To enable a job rule set for more than one job, select the jobs in Job Finder. Select Edit > Enable Rule Set in Selected Jobs. Locate and select the rule set that you want, and click Enable in <n> jobs.
- To quickly disable rule sets, in the Process Templates pane, right-click the rule set, and select Disable or Disable in.
- While the rule set is disabled you can edit it. The changes take effect immediately when the rule set is enabled. If the rule set is still finishing, the executing actions complete using the old version of the rule set.
- When a rule set is enabled, it appears in the Process Templates pane of Job Manager and in the Enabled Rule Sets list of Rule Set Manager. When a rule set is disabled, it does not appear in the Process Templates pane, but it still appears in the Rule Set Library list of Rule Set Manager. The icon next to a rule set indicates whether it is enabled or disabled.
- Disabling a rule set does not stop any instances of it that are currently executing. This preserves the work of a rule set that is running on a timer, for example.
