Tutorial: Create new instance

Before any rule can fire, you need to enter data into your app. The first step of entering data is to create instances of the things that you defined:

  • Entity instance: An instance of an entity type.
  • Descriptor instance: An instance of a descriptor type.

The most common situation is that you create a new entity instance including the descriptor instances that are attributed to that entity instance. If you want, you can also create descriptor instances separately, and link them to entities later. Entering data in the form of creating instances may trigger rules with equation conditions to fire. Therefore, it is always important to check the results of creating new instances.
