Have you heard of Decision-as-a-Service?
When you’re implementing complex applications, services (i.e., microservices), or business processes, it’s always a challenge to share business logic. With FlexRule decision-as-a-service, you can simplify the logic of your services, extract the business logic and share it across all of your services, applications, and processes in a manageable way.
FlexRule Server takes care of everything you need to make your business logic (i.e., business rules, decisions, flows, etc.) a secure and scalable REST API.
Sounds like Magic! Let’s see where to start.

Publish your First Project
Once you’ve created your process, you can package it up in FlexRule Designer and publish it straight to FlexRule Server. This will let you offer your process as a service to other users and applications.
Use the link below for specific instructions on how to do this.
Test a Deployed Project
Once you have a service ready in FlexRule Server, you can test it easily through the Workbench.
As the service is a REST API, you can also use third-party tools like Postman to query the service.
