Rule Inspection

  • Updated

Pre-requirements

Before proceeding to rule inspection, make sure you meet the following pre-requirements.

  • You have the API credentials to retrieve an access token
  • You followed the procedure to retrieve a JSON Web Token (JWT, either 1FA or 2FA)

  • You have at least one API key provided by Apiax to access your digital compliance rules

As a best practice, Apiax recommends reading Understanding digital compliance Rules before you start inspecting the rules to get an overview of how the Apiax decision trees (rules) work.

 

Rule inspection

Use this Rule inspection description before you start building your use cases to:

  • Understand the properties of the rule sets - find these in the response at the JSON path $.properties.
    Check what the regulatory properties are and what their allowed values are in each country.

  • Understand which were the rule sets inspected - find these in the response at the JSON path $.ruleSets.
    Check the rule sets' ID, version, and country.

  • Understand the taxonomy terms referenced by those rule sets - find these in the response at the JSON path $.concepts.
    Check which are the used concepts and what definitions they have.

Find the Rule API inspect endpoint at RULE_ENGINE_HOST/api/v3/rules/inspect

If you only want to inspect specific rule sets, make sure to add the details to your request.


Notice: TEST API keys fall back to PROD activated rules if there is no TEST activation for a given rule set.
