By creating rules, you can automate and anticipate responses to situations, which can help provide a more personalized and efficient user experience.
You can define the type of situation a rule is used in. Rules are comprised of conditions and actions. A condition is a piece of criteria that the situation must satisfy to result in the rule activating. The action is the result of the rule activating.

For example, you can create a rule for account deletion. You might define the condition to activate the rule when an account is deleted from the Developer Portal. After the rule is activated, the action can be to remove account data and send a final email to email address that was associated with the account holder to confirm the account deletion.

In Lab 3, you’ll create a rule on the Developer Portal to notify subscribers that an API has been superseded.
