Description - When a variable has nested classifications (i.e. classifications that are more than 1 level deep), Classification Rule Builder is unable to operate on those nested classifications.

Why is this feature important to you - It is common to have classifications that are nested. Furthermore, the Rule Builder's interface implies that it can operate on nested classifications, when in reality, it cannot. This is the biggest bug.

How would you like the feature to work - When there is a rule that operates on a nested classification, then that rule should work in the same way as with top-level classifications.

Current Behaviour - Nested classifications cannot be classified with the Rule Builder, even though the Rule Builder interface implies that it can be done.

Hi @yuhuisg ,

As an alternative, one can create a regex with nested capturing groups. Is the idea to make it simpler for users less comfortable with these expressions? In theory, the computation of your suggestion would have the potential to be simpler if users were using only "starts with" and/or "end with" conditions on nested classifications as versus regex.

@jkm-disco , the problem isn't to do with making life simpler for AA users. It is about making Classifications work "as advertised".

Given this setup:

eVar1:

  -- Classification A

  -- Classification B

      -- Classification B1

      -- Classification B2

  -- Classification C

Classification Rule Builder works with Classifications A, B and C, but not Classification B1 nor Classification B2, i.e. classifications that are not at the top level.

That is the problem that my idea attempts to address.
