Every now and then I find myself debating with a friend or colleague on whether we should use ACL or Business rules query.
Personally, I think the use of business rule query should be minimised. if you think about it, ACL called ACL for a reason! your security admin is the only one who can change ACL where anyone in your organisation with personalize_rules role can play with a query business rule that can be integral to your team.
again, I am not saying never use query business rules , I am just saying it should be minimised.
Here is when you shouldn’t use query business rules

I also wanted to enable my end-users to filter on a short description; in other words, I would like them to be able to interactively use the Short Description CONTAINS filter on my dashboard.
Using import set for populating CMDB is always a challenging activity. setting up the right coalesce field to your transform map makes this activity particularly challenging, correctly identify CI primary attribute is a key to reduce the risk of introducing inconsistencies through duplicate records.
