Creating an OR Condition Within the CRE

 

You can create a conditional OR test within the Custom Rules Engine (CRE), which gives you more options for defining your rules by using building blocks.

For each extra test that you add, it can be only an AND or AND NOT conditional test. To create an OR condition within the CRE you must place each separate set of conditions into a building block, and then create a new rule or building block that uses the when <selected_rule> matches any of the following rules rule.

This ensures that both building blocks are loaded when the test is applied.
