The dialog will indicate successful matches in green text and include a reference to the name of the successful Rule. The unsuccessful matches display in red text and a reference indicating the reason for the error or matching failure. Also note that any error will be shown in red text, including when a Rule detects more than one server Item (component) match. This conflict is regarded as an 'ambiguous' result and can be resolved in the Item Manager dialog.
