The customer needed one more action in addition to out-of-the-box Block, Challenge, Allow and named it as Additional Challenge. So, created a new action inserting 3 new lines into bharosa_app.properties as follows:

rule.action.enum.AdditionalChallenge.name=Additional Challenge
rule.action.enum.AdditionalChallenge.description=Additional Challenge

a) Is it correct?

This action will be used inside a transaction which means when the transaction is executed, this action to be triggered. So, we added a rule to call this action.

When the rule is triggered we saw this action to the column ActionList (VcryptRunRules.actionList).
But the result column ((VcryptRunRules.Result) had the value 'Allow'

b) Is this the normal behavior? Can we do anything in order to have in the result column the new value (adding more definitions to bharosa_app.properties or somewhere else maybe?)

We noticed that when we use the Challenge Action the result column (VcryptRunRules.Result) has the value 'Challenge' .
So, what is the difference between Challenge action and another user defined action like the one we created the makes OAAM to behave differently?
