In this video, you will learn what modules you need to install and enable to get started with Rules.

Download and Install

  • Rules(The Rules "project" contains three modules: Rules, Rules UI, and Rules Scheduler.)
  • Entity API (Rules depends on this module)


  • Go to "Modules" and enable:

    -Entity API
    -Entity Token(you must enable Entity API and Entity Token first before you can enable Rules)
    -Rules UI (This module provides a user interface to Rules, it is similar to Views and View UI, you need to enable it while configuring Rules, but you can disabled it once your Drupal site is running live)

Now that the modules are installed and enabled, we are ready to create our first rule.
