Implementing And/Or Logic in a Criteria Based Group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to figure out how to implement and and/or logic (not just and or just or, but both) in a criteria specification for group membership.  I can see that the group criteria definition gives you the option of one or the other, and not both.  But, then I started thinking about sets.  Basically, constructing sets for the "and" portion and using the group criteria screen to do the "or" portion (or visa-versa).  But, I don't see an obvious way to reference sets in a group membership criteria.  I suppose, I could just construct everything in sets, with sets reference sets, but even if I do that, I can't figure out how to reference a set in the group membership criteria screen.

    Anybody tried to do something like this from within the portal?  I have this process working from a table in a database (I have virtually unlimited logic methods available there).  But, I'd like to move all this group management out of the database and into the portal. 

    I'm just brain storming

  • Greg-

    If you use the Add Subcondition link you can nest ANDs/ORs in your group criteria.

  • You want to find : "an obvious way to reference sets in a group membership criteria"

    I suggest doing it this way:  'Resource ID' IN / Not IN <my set> 

    In this way you can even add users and groups as members.


    ALL of those:

    'Resource ID' IN 'set: employee'

    'Resource ID' IN 'set: employee's groups'

    'Resource ID' IN 'set: employee-extra'

    'Resource ID' Not IN 'set: employee - blacklist'
