Gear Rule Templates define the default set of Gear rules for new projects and are set by Site Admins.
Changes to the Gear Rule Templates do not affect existing projects, only projects created after a change is made. Project administrators can override or modify these default Gear rules within the project's management page.
Gear Rules determine which Gears run automatically on a project's data*. Features of the data (e.g., classification, file name, or file type) can be used to determine which Rules will apply to those data.
Multiple Gear Rules can be defined on a project and will apply only to those data within that project.
Gear Rules are limited to gears that specify a single input file and to SDK gears that have "read-only" permissions.
