When a student applies for admission, you want the system to check whether the student fulfils the set prerequisites, which are checked by means of rule elements:

Prerequisite knowledge in Algebra (rule element ZU_MA1) Prerequisite knowledge in Geometry (rule element ZU_MA2) P r e r e q u i s i t e k n o w l e d g e i n M a t h e m a t i c s b a s e d o n a M a t h e m a t i c s t e s t ( r u l e e l e m e n t Z U _ M A T )

The rule elements are all validations. To map the prerequisites in the system, you combine the following entries:

Validation Validation Validation

_ _ _ ZU MA1 ZU MA2 ZU MAT






In the first two steps, the system checks if the student has the prerequisite knowledge in Algebra and Geometry. You map this check in the system by placing the two rule elements in parentheses and combining them with the operator AND. Alternatively, the system checks if the student has fulfilled the Mathematics prerequisites by achieving a pass in the Mathematics test. You map this check in the system by combining the first two steps and the third step with the operator OR.

Definition A container for rule modules.

Use Applications can be linked directly to rule containers by means of non-academic callup points (in

Customizing for

, see

). You can also link rule containers with objects of the academic structure, such as organizational units and programs, by means of academic callup points. applications, such as module booking, evaluate these links.

A rule container contains rule modules which, in turn, contain rule elements. A rule element can be a

validation or substitution.

You can access the functions for creating and maintaining rule containers from the

menu by choosing

. You use the

object manager when you create and maintain rule containers. The object manager is a convenient user tool which helps you find and select rule containers.


When you create a new rule container or maintain an existing one, you create or change the following infotypes for the rule container:

  • Object (1000)

  • Relationships (1001)

  • Description (1002)

  • Rule Modules (1747)
