Issue: Two Levels of Ephesoft Validation


Ephesoft performs validation at two levels 

1. Automatic Validation : Here all the extracted values for index fields are checked for the data type match and appropriate values are marked as exceptions before being presented to the user. So we perform all the data type checks automatically.
2. Manual Validation/Validation : Where all your validation rules are matched against the extracted/modified values. If operators change some values so in order to prevent such errors we have provided validation rules where you/admins can restrict invalid entries.
You need to be careful while adding validation rules to the system. If you deliberately allow adding alphabets for integer fields then you might end up into problems during export.
However if you want to perform data type validation checks again then you can create a Field value change script which can check for data type validity whenever a field value is modified.
