Rule Type, rule type
The general classification or particular use of a rule. For example, the System screen in an application used for hiring employees contains Property rules that define the information that needs to be captured from the user, for example, full name, email address, phone number, and résumé. The screen also contains a Section or View rule that defines how the properties are displayed to the user.

Rules of different types are linked together to define your application. Rule types also help to categorize key concepts and behavior in your application, saving you time during the development cycle. You can use another instance of the same rule type to define other sections of the application.
