Separate the Intercepted by existing rules row within rule generation.

We identified in May that the “Intercepted by existing rules” row within the rule generator does not appear to be functioning correctly. Rather than providing stats surrounding transactions which were intercepted by the model revision, it actually provides stats for transactions which qualified for any rule within the model. This is extremely problematic for our implementation because every transaction will always qualify for at least one rule within the model as part of pre and post-processing functions (these functions do not set an intercept however). Aside from causing confusion amongst our clients, I believe this also impacts another key feature of the product related to rule generation.

When you define your training data selection, there are three options for “Rule generation scenario”. Two of them inform the system to consider already defined rules of the model revision. Again, 100% of our volume will be impacted by at least one rule within the model, which means that using either of those two scenarios will result in the system ignoring 100% of all transactions for rule generation. This only leaves one rule generation scenario, which is more suited to a day 1 model, and not incremental updates to an existing model (‘ignore existing rules and ignore existing intercept in records’). This seems like a huge gap in functionality.
