A rule is basically an item path that locates one or multiple geometries or geometry components such as shading groups.  Each rule has also a set of properties (more, are likely to come in the future) such as visibility state or material assignment.

 

Now let's say, you have in your scene an object named project://f40_layer0 and you would like to assign a material normal to all of its shading groups. To do that, you would just need to add a new rule in the shading layer. Set it to its item path and select the normal material.

One fundamental thing to understand about shading layers is that rules act as overrides. Your geometries can have their materials defined via the material linker or via a Material Override, without being affected by a shading layer. If no rule affects a specific item, it's left unchanged.

 

Only the F40 glass shading group is affected by our shading layer.
