Create an Outbound rule

An Outbound rule is a business rule in PerformancePiont Planning Business Modeler that exports PerformancePoint Planning Server data to an external application. Each Outbound rule must belong to an Outbound rule set — a collection of Outbound rules. You can only execute an Outbound rule from within an Outbound rule set as part of a scheduled data export job.
