BPN-Rule Validate button to avoid rule conflict Issues

BPN support tool is used for configuring the flow of documents using Business Processes.The tool gives complete freedom to the Implementer to configure flows, Many of the times rules will be specific to partners but there are other configurations also which will be generic in nature. This will avoid multiple rules creation for same action.


The problem here is when multiple people work on creating rules they can also use conditions which can be satisfied by generic rules as well. This is going to be a big Issue as one partner's data may go to others by picking other flows. IBM being a GDPR complaint company, we should avoid these Issues.


Proposed solution : If there is a way to check for matching condition (Rule validate button) which checks in DB and displays we can alter our own rules there by conflict rules can be avoided.

    It would help a great deal to avoid duplicate rules.
