You can skip the first two steps if you have already installed and activated the mentioned plugins.

Click Add New Rule.
A dialog box will appear where you have to configure settings for your new rule. The first field is the name of the rule. A relevant rule name is recommended as it will be easier to identify and edit the rule later.
The Rule Type option allows you to apply the rules for registered or guest users.
