This topic provides instructions for using the Rule debugger to test the product model. The Rule debugger must be enabled to use it. For instructions, see Enable/disable the rule debugger.


This information applies only to Product builder.

  1. Click Product information management > Common > Product builder > Product models.

  2. Click Product model to open the Product models form.

  3. Select the product model that you want to test, and then click Functions > Test model to open the Product Builder configuration form.

  4. Test the model by selecting appropriate values for the variables. Whenever a value is added, set, or changed, the Rule debugger is triggered.

  5. View a selection in the Rule debugger. For each selection that you make in the Product Builder configuration form, the Rule debugger reflects the result in the background. In this manner, you can validate immediately whether your choices trigger the correct actions.

To retest new rules or variables in the Product Builder configuration form, you can restart the rule-validation session for the product model.

  • Click the Restart button. All variables are cleared, and the validation restarts.
