A blocked rule and a withdrawn rule are both invisible to rule resolution. Similarly, both blocked rules and withdrawn rules prevent lower-version rules with the same RuleSet and visible key from being selected by rule resolution. However, a blocked rule may block other rules in any RuleSet, and a blocked rule stops rule resolution from finding rules in higher Applies To classes. A withdrawn rule affects other rules only in one RuleSet and one Applies Toclass.
When you skim a RuleSet version that contains a blocked rule, the resulting RuleSet version does not contain the blocked rule or any rules that the blocked rule blocks. When you skim a RuleSet version that contains a withdrawn rule, the resulting RuleSet version contains the withdrawn rule.
This option makes the rule in the current version and previous versions in the same ruleset, withdrawn from the rule resolution. It means rule resolution, invalidates the withdrawn rule and its other lower versions in the same ruleset.
For example – Assume, if you have rule in ABC:01-01-01 version and updated the rule in ABC:01-01-02 version. When you withdraw the rule in 01-01-02 version, then the rule resolution never pick the rule in both 01-01-02 and 01-01-01.
