About Flow Sets

Flow and rule sets are common sets of rules and flows that can be parameterized or customized based on context without the need to copy or rewrite them. A Flow Set allows you to define a number of rules or flows that can work together. These define the process that you would like to follow that will be known as the base set.
Once a Flow Set is defined in the base set, a subset can be created. This allows a change in the process to be added to a group of flows and rules without the need to recreate each item. The subset has the ability to alter input data, which rules are applied, and which processing elements should remain. The process will stay the same, but the context of each subset can be modified for the situation.
An example of this would be through a loan processing company. By defining a base flow set, you can set the process of how you would like to approve loans and apply rules to the data. However, with a large company, there may be a difference in how you would like to approve the loan. For example, the loan approval requirements in one state may be different than the ones in a separate state. Although the main flow approving process is the same, you can specify the subset and change some of the context per state.
