Use a Navigation rule to construct a multi-level XML document to be used in navigation and context menus.

If the Pega-Mobile RuleSet is present in your application, the Type field appears on the New form. For an application that runs on a mobile device, specify Mobile in the Type field so that mobile-specific features and menu options are available during development of your navigation rule.


Use the Application Explorer to the access navigation rules that apply to the work types in your application. Use the Records Explorer to list all of the navigation rules available to you.
