Manage Map Engine Validation Rules

Validation Rules are sets of Boolean expressions that enable the Map Engine to check the content of a Business Document in DML during message processing.

To manage the way the Map Engine applies Validation Rules when handling a message flow, you work in the Mapping Flow Properties view, in the General section.

For more information, see Use Business Document Validation Rules.

Check box Description

Input

Check input Validation Rules

Select this option if you want the Map Engine to apply Validation Rules when parsing the message to the input Business Document.

Stop on first input Validation Rule error

By default this option is selected. The Map Engine stops processing the message when it encounters the first Validation Rule error.

If you clear this check box, the Map Engine precedes to the end of the Validation Rules validation for the input message whether or not an error is detected. If one or more errors are returned during Validation Rules validation, the Map Engine suspends the processing of the message at the end of Validation Rules phase, and logs each error to the Message Log.
