2.2.1.3.1.5 PidTagRuleProvider Property

Type: PtypString ([MS-OXCDATA] section 2.11.1)

The PidTagRuleProvider property ([MS-OXPROPS] section 2.956) identifies the client application that owns the rule (2). The client specifies this property when adding or modifying a rule (2).

Rules that are stored on folders are associated with the application that owns the rules (2) by using a rule provider string. Each client application is to only add, modify or delete rules (2) that it is responsible for.

A client can define its own rule provider string. The value of the string MUST NOT be the same as a rule provider string being used by another client that could be setting rules (2) on the same folder.<2>
