Configuring the Message Router's First Routing Rule

Before we test, we have to direct the messages from the Message Router to the newly created Business Operation. Add a business rule that does this by performing the following steps:

  1. Click TutorialFileService_Router on the configuration diagram, then, under Basic Settings, click the magnifying glass next to BusinessRuleName Tutorial.TutorialFileServiceRoutingRule. This should bring up the Rule Editor.

  4. Click the condition oval for the when action and fill in the number 1. This indicates that we would like to match this case every time, though often a when condition restricts to a subset of messages.

  5. Click the when oval, then + at the top of the page, then click send to add a send action.

  7. Make sure to click Save after the rule is added to the Rule List. If you do not, you will lose your changes to the Rule page.
