As its name implies, Query Rules is applied at query time. Therefore, some search parameters can be used to control how the rules are applied.

Most of the methods manipulate queryRule objects, as described in detail in the different Query Rules methods.

Just like for objects or synonyms, write methods for rules are asynchronous: they return a taskID that can be used by Wait for operations.
