Item - multiple variables?


I want to save/use multiple variables for one item (person).

For instance is this person home, does this person want a notification for “x”, and so on.

Do I need to make a group for that person, and than an item for every variable I want to keep track?


It depends.

If you are using any of the rules languages except for Rules DSL, you could use Item metadata to store some of that. But be aware that if you want to be able to adjust the values from a UI, you must use Items and not this approach.

The Group is entirely optional and based on how you want to organize your Items and/or place the Items into your semantic model.
