Rasa ignoring rule

Hi All, This is a strange one. I have a rule set up which is pretty simple:

- rule: submit reflection as it is (done)
  steps:
  - intent: submit_as_is
  - action: action_process_reflections
  - action: utter_submit_as_is

However when the intent is called, the rule is not activated. I can’t understand why. Any ideas? Here’s the output:

[state 8] user intent: submit_as_is | previous action name: action_listen | slots: {'reflection_len_ok': (1.0, 1.0), 'assignment': (1.0,)}
2021-08-14 09:09:17 DEBUG    rasa.core.policies.rule_policy  - There is no applicable rule.

So as you can see, the intent is clearly seen by rasa, but despite that, it says there is no applicable rule.

I’ve attached my config.yml file in case that is of interest. config.yml (1.3 KB)

@Randywreed Hi, as seen your config.yml you not uncommented RulePolicy.config.yml (1.3 KB) check and try again.

policies:

# # If you'd like to customize them, uncomment and adjust the policies.

My rule policy is uncommented (though maybe you’re saying it shouldn’t be). The file didn’t upload correctly. This is it:

@Randywreed The one is attached, in that it is commented, it good if it’s not commented and its looking like the one you posted recently. Did the problem still persisted ?

Yes. Even though the rule policy is uncommented. It still ignores the rule. Other rules are obeyed but this one it does not recognize. It comes after a form has been deactivated and then a message with two button appears. Clicking a button should call the rule. But while the intent is recognized, the rule is not activated. I cannot understand why.
