Benefits and Description

The introduction of a new Platform Structures Module supports enhancements to the existing Manage Applicability feature.

When navigating a generic structure, the system evaluates the assigned expressions against the criteria specified by the user. It then filters the items in the structure based on the result of that evaluation. This ability to define complex applicability on assigned service information improves the re-use of information.

The new methodology for expressions uses existing Options and Variants functionality. The window where the options are selected window contains additional improvements to add the new boolean expressions that define service applicability.
