Defining Moderation Rules

The Rules tab on the Dashboard allows you to map out your content moderation policies and tells the Dashboard which of your Actions to take on particular types of posts or users. Dashboard will automatically trigger these rules based on model classifications and/or user post history, enabling automated moderation actions based on conditions you set.

When a post is submitted through the API, if all conditions in a rule are matched, the Dashboard will trigger the rule and take any corresponding action. The Dashboard will also return a description of each rule triggered within the API response (refer to the API reference page for an example).

You can specify the exact action you want to take when a rule is triggered. The action dropdown will be populated with all actions created on the Actions page.

Order of Rules

The order in which rules are triggered matters. You can customize the order on the Dashboard using the arrows. You can also select whether to trigger all matching rules in order, or just the first matching rule. Triggering all actions when multiple rules match will send multiple calls to your actions server.
