Use cases and sample payloads

Assuming the default action is to ACCEPT an audit and the user wants to discard the audits conditionally, you must understand the rules payload for some of the common use case scenarios.

Discard temporary and test hive_table audits (Nested rules example)

 "action": "DISCARD",
"ruleName": "test_rule_1",
 "ruleExprObjList": [
		        {
		            "typeName": "hive_table",
		            "condition": "AND",
		            "criterion": [
		                {
		                    "operator": "==",
		                    "attributeName": "temporary",
		                    "attributeValue": "false"
		                },
		                {
		                    "condition": "OR",
		                    "criterion": [
		                        {

		                            "attributeName": "name",
		                            "attributeValue": "tmp"
		                        },
		                        {
		                            "operator": "==",
		                            "attributeName": "qualifiedName",
		                            "attributeValue": "tmp"
		                        }
