Adding features

A decorator adds additional features to a rule provider by adding additional configuration options. For example, if a percent discount should only be granted for a sepecific category, simply select and assign the category decorator to the current rule provider. All a decorator does is adding one or more specific features that can be assembled with other decorator rules in various arrangments in order to create a distinctive rule that extends a rule provider's own configuration. The great advantage of decorators is that they can be reused in any combination with all rules.

Usage#

Decorators are activated by adding them to the "Provider" input field in the detail view of a rule item. The easiest way to do so is by clicking on the "+" icon next to the input field and selecting the desired decorator:

Add a decorator to the rule provider

Example: If a percentage (provided by the "Percent" rule provider) is configured like this:

Percent

If you would also like to restrict the rule to products from a specific category, you also need to add the "Category" decorator:

Percent,Category

The decorators are called from right to left, so in the given example the "Category" decorator would be executed first, then the "Rebate" rule provider. Therefore, it's a good idea to add decorators requiring less resources at the end of the input field and decorators using external sources just before the rule provider.

Built-in decorators#

Category#

Restricts rules to products which are assigned to one of the configured categories.
