Master rule groups can be used to install general rules for multiple exports. By using the master rule groups, you only have to create certain rules once. The master rule groups are applied to your source feed before it is manipulated in the Categories- and Rules steps of your individual feeds/API's.
You can use the master rule groups for example to filter certain items from your feed or to set standard values.
1) Creating the master rule groups
The master rule groups can be created under the option Setup from the main menu of your projects, where you also install the import of your projects. Click on the tab Master rules at the top of your screen to navigate to the master rule groups.
At the Master rules tab you can create several sets of master rule groups. Per export you have the option to choose which group of master rules you would like to use. By giving your groups different colors, it will be very clear which master rule group is used for an export. The maximum amount of master rule groups you can create, depend on your plan. Each group contains a maximum amount of 30 rules. For more information about these limits you can contact our support team or check our pricing page.
2) Add master rule groups to your exports
The master rule groups can be added to your exports under the tab Settings of your export. Here you can state which group of master rules you would like to use, you can of course also choose to not use the master rule groups for certain exports.
In the API and Feeds overview the master rule groups will be shown per export.
