    Hi @elch,
    The rules are editable locally on a user computer where Rule Wizard is installed - because Rule Wizard is not a web application, it is a local application.
    So the best way to share the newly locally-edited rule - to share with a team - is to use DTP - to publish the rule to a rule map in DTP and have all the team use the same DTP test configuration associated with the rule map.

    Summary - about using DTP as a central point to share with team:
    1. You have a custom rule(s) (edited by Rule Wizard). You have a DTP server.
    2. Create (or maybe you already have) a rule map on DTP.
    3. Upload the custom rule(s) files to the rule map (3rd tab in Rule Map editor) in DTP.
    4. You have some test configuration(s) which you use. in order your newly-uploaded rule is visible in these test configuration(s), the test configuration(s) need to be associated/linked with the rule map (where the custom rule has been uploaded). The association can be done by editing test configuration, going to "Static Analysis" tab and choosing rule map name from combo at the top of the rules table.

    Hi @elch,

    We are not sure we understand what do you mean by saying "child and parent rules"?
    And what kind of error about child link do you reference to?

    thank you,

    Janusz
