Reproducing the Issue

Sample scenario is to try defaulting employees GeoZone to NZ:

  1. Create an "always true" rule with "Location" set as Base Object;
  2. Try to find GeoZone in the Then condition and see that it is not displayed:


This is expected behavior as GeoZone is an association, not a field.

Building business rules with associations is not supported. This is expected behavior.

For reference on the supported business functions kindly review the Guide.
