Why creating Rules components? Here is why!

  • You can reuse and simplify configuration
  • You can export each component individually
  • You can use rules components to perform conditions from within actions
  • You can execute components manually for easier debugging (or just for the sake of executing their actions)

An important aspect of components is that they have variables – parameters that must be sent to the component when executing it.
