For each custom field, you can create multiple rules that populate with different values
based on various conditions. When multiple rules are present, Console uses the first
rule listed (as long as it matches the condition). To modify the order of the custom
field rules, use the drag-and-drop function to move the rules in the list.
When creating an advanced report, you can find your
available custom fields by clicking the Help link in the
SQL Script Text section.
