Creating a RulesetTru Apps applies item-level permissions based on rules you define. Those set of rules are called Rulesets. There are 3 components needed to define a Ruleset: 1. Starting permissions2. Always permissions3. Column value based permissions Starting Permissions Copy permissions from parent -  items added/modified will start with the same permissions as the parent library or folder. Clear all permissions - items added/modified will start with absolutely no permissions applied to them. Always Permissions Those are permissions that will always be applied to the item added or edited. Usually rules added here define administrators or stakeholders that need to see or edit content from all teams. Column value Permissions (also Role based permissions) Rules defined here apply permissions based on column values.  When defining the rule you specify: 1. Column  (which column you want to check against)2. Value (what value should trigger the permission to be applied)3. Permission (What permission should be applied) You may specify as many columns as needed and as many values and permissions as needed. Example: You have a customer column and you want anything labeled as customer A to be only viewable and editable by Customer AAttaching the Ruleset to a Library or ListOnce a ruleset is created and saved, it needs to be attached before it starts working.  To attach a ruleset to a list or library navigate to the Ruleset creation page and click on  Attach Ruleset to List. The Attach Ruleset to List button will rename to  Detach Rulset from List if it is attached successfully. Once attached test to make sure Tru Permissions is applying the permissions correctly.Testing RulesBefore using the Tru Permissions feature, make sure you test it to make sure it is applying permissions as you expect. To do so first try adding an item to the library or list. Then, check its permissions as follows: 1. Click on the ...   next tot he document or item you just added.2. Click on the ...  on the box that shows up3. Click on Shared With 4. Click on ADVANCED This will take you to a page that look like the view below. If item shows Unique permissions then that means the Tru Permissions correctly updated the permissions.
