Required Field Rules
Required field rules allow you to customize which properties are required when saving new or existing objects.
Name: The name of the rule. The name is required and must be unique.
Object Type: The object type for this rule. For example, if you want to ensure the Design Description of a service is provided, select Service.
Property: The specific property you want to ensure is provided.
Error Type: The type of error to show if the object’s property is not provided.
- Error: The object will not be able to be saved until a value is provided.
- Warning: The user will be warned that there is no value and offered a chance to correct it, but can ignore it.
- Information: The user will be notified that there is no value for the property only.
Active: If checked, this rule will be active. You can disable this rule without deleting it by unchecking this box.
Id: The ID of the rule. This is required and must be unique. It is automatically generated, but can be modified if desired.
Custom Message Template: Change the error message that appears when this rule fails to validate.
Context IDs When the rule is validated. - Save: Validate the rule when saving the object. - Delete: Validate the rule when the object is deleting.
Skip Null or Empty Values: Only validate the rule if there is whitespace (empty spaces), vs. an actual empty value.
Invert Result: Reverse how this rule is validated, for example, show an error when a value is provided.
Target Criteria (Advanced): Allows you to specify other rules before attempting to validate this rule. For example, only validate if another property is checked, or if the object is new only.
A text value of
IsNewObject([This]) can be used for validating new objects only.
