Adding OR operator at the BPN rule Condition Level

In BPN tool while working with clients like Allied Bakeries where the rule counts increases for a single Trading partner.

Allied Bakeries Trading partners like New York Bakery and COMPASS has multiple SAP internal account number like 20043,20044 etc. which is used in the receive rule condition.

The Internal account number will be coming in the Filename which will be used as the condition in the Receieve rule.(As shown in Current Rule Implementation document).

Though the Action including the map name in the rule is same, we might have to create multiple rules to match the Internal Account number in the Filename.

Proposed Idea will have an OR operator for the Field Value as shown in the Proposed Idea.docx.

Using the OR operator will help us to add multiple Internal account number in the same rule.

Please note:

When the OR operator is selected only the field value will get added (as shown the Proposed Idea.docx.

What is your industry? Other
How will this idea be used?

The proposed idea will reduce the rule count drastically and will be easier for the Implementer to add future conditions easily whithout developing a new rule entirely.

In the given example, we have 8 rules, which can be reduced to a single rule if we have this OR operator option.
