Validation Rules

Validation rules have been implemented to allow for greater data integrity within the database. Validation rules will prevent a user importing data that fails one of the rules that have been setup and activated. The number of validation rules will expand over time. To activate a validation rule, select the required Configuration Pack then select the Validation Rules option from the ribbon.

A list of the validation rules will then appear; to select one as active, select the Edit button.

A screen will then appear allowing for the name of the rule, as well as the description to be edited. To select as active, check the Is Active box and click Save.

The next time any data is added to a project within this configuration pack, either through data import or through data editing, the program will run a check to ensure that the data fits within this rule. The above example will ensure that all data has a base of geology that is lower down a location then the top of geology.
