A root-level rule group is a rule group without a parent. For example, in Figure 29 on page 179 , RG 2 is the parent of RG 4, but RG 2 is not a root-level rule group. Only RG 1 is a root-level rule group, because it is the only rule group in the hierarchy that does not have a parent rule group (and, subsequently, is at the top of the hierarchy). Figure 29 provides a sample rule hierarchy that shows how parent and root rule groups relate to other rule groups in the same hierarchy. Figure 29 show the following relationships: Rule groups that have no parent are root-level rule groups. There is only one root-level rule group for each hierarchy and that root-level rule group appears at the top of the hierarchy (RG1). NOTE: Only assignment administrators (not delegated administrators) can create root-level rule groups. Figure 29. Relationships Between Parent and Child Rule Groups in a Hierarchy

Siebel Assignment Manager Administration Guide Version 8.1, Rev. A Assignment Rule Administration for Delegated Assignment About Assignment Rule Group Hierarchy 180 Rule groups that are parents to no other rule groups (rule groups with no child rule groups) are considered leaf rule groups and appear at the bottom of the hierarchy (RG3, RG4, and RG5). Rules at the leaf nodes are processed first by Assignment Manager. If none of those rules pass, Assignment Manager processes rules in the set of rule groups above the leaf nodes, and so on, until the root-level rule group is processed. This method of processing the rules ensures that, if a rule is inherited from one rule group to another, the inherited rule is passed first. NOTE: The Default Rule Group is a root-level rule group (has no parent) as well as a leaf node (has no child). Assignment Owners and Designees This topic is part of “About Assignment Rule Group Hierarchy” on page 177 . Siebel Assignment Manager uses ownership as a means to determine if a particular rule is eligible for inheritance by a rule group. Each rule group must have an owner , and a rule group defaults to the creator (as owner) when a new rule group is created. NOTE: The concept of ownership is an integral part of delegated assignment functionality; however, if you do not use delegated assignment, ownership serves no functional role. Owners can delegate their responsibility to designees with the same rights as an owner. A designee is an individual who can view and edit rule groups (and the rules within those rules groups) on behalf of an owner. The owner and the designees of a rule group are collectively known as delegated administrators (DAs). Assignment Rule Inheritance This topic is part of “About Assignment Rule Group Hierarchy” on page 177 . Rule inheritance allows assignment administrators (AAs) to enforce business logic, while allowing delegated administrators (DAs) to further refine that logic. In addition, inheritors of rules can refine those same rules and specialize them for their unique circumstances.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
