Gear Rules determine which Gears run automatically and are a powerful way to automate data curation or analysis. Classification, file name, or file type, can all be used to determine which rules will be applied. For example, a very common gear rule is to run the DICOM classifier gear on all files with the DICOM file type.
Site admins can use Gear Rule Templates to define the default set of Gear rules for new projects. Project administrators can override or modify these default Gear rules within the project's management page.
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.
Multiple Gear Rules can be defined on a project and will apply only to 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.
Gear version note
One setting you and project admins should be aware of is the Gear version. By default Gear templates use the latest version of the the gear. However, you may want to standardize on a gear version. If this is the case, make sure to choose a specific gear version to run in the gear template.
