HRF 1.0 SP05 delivers for the first time a Business Rules Management application that enables working with HRF as standalone*. With this application business users can view, create and edit rules in the system. Using the web UI, users can also create, configure and edit rule services and configure general parameters of the framework.
To enhance the readability and edit of long rules we have enriched the rules language with “any of the following” (“all of the following”) keywords that can precede a list of short rules as inter-rules OR (AND).
The user friendliness of creating and managing rules on complex objects was further enhanced with a more natural use of the keyword “all”.
The language also supports now the Boolean operator “is not” (e.g. customer is not VIP instead of customer.VIP=false)
Other investments included run-time performance improvements using “one-to-zero-to-one” data objects’” association type.
As of SAP HANA rev. 97, a restart is no longer required after enabling the SAP HRF run-time plug-in. Additionally, the SAP HRF post-installation/upgrade configuration script can be executed in a single step (previously two runs were required to complete the activation of resources).
* HRF is a free add-on available for standalone use only to customers that own a license for one of the HRF embedding applications (currently: Fraud Management, OPInt, TRP, Hybris Marketing; more to come) or HANA Enterprise Edition.
