Using a Post rule to mark the assets as control points

The Post rule lets you move an asset to a specified folder after the asset is added to the asset system. The Post rule is executed on the assets that are already a part of the asset system.

Consider the following scenario:

Assume that you have imported the assets for the Oracle Configured Databases. You want to mark all the assets as control points. You can create a Post rule to mark the assets for Oracle Configured Databases as control points.
