Perform "Get" OperationSpecify that the definition is used as a function to retrieve a value from the database table column.
DatasetType the fact type of the database table. The default is the database name. Use unique names for your data sets when defining rules that compare data from distinct tables with the same schema.
Binding typeSelect the database binding type from the drop-down list. Use Data connection on a single table to optimize retrieval; the engine will create a SQL query at runtime. Use Data table/data row if your binding applies to multiple queries; the application must prepopulate the table or row before it executes the policy.
