IBM MDM External Validation

There are 2 main categories of external validation

1)Field Level(Element Level)
2)Cross Filed Level(Group Level)

It will elaborate more on field level validation here.The element level validation is generally used under the following circumstances.
  • To check whether the field is optional or mandatory.
  • To specify minimum and maximum field lengths and values.
  • To specify allowable and prohibited values and patterns etc.

The tables involved are :


The V_ELEMENT contains the attribute which needs to validated.

V_ELEMENT_VAL relates the attribute(element) with the validation function.

V_ELEMENT_PARAM can be used to specify the param type and the param value.The param type is used to retrieve the param value in the validation function we write.

V_FUNCTION contains the fully qualified class path to the validation function class.(Function name , Java class).
