A field can have one or more validations based on the requirement, or none.
Only functions with Validation type are listed in Select function from Jiffy drop-down while adding the Validations.
To validate an Email id field, the following Python code is written. If validation criterion not met, error message ‘Invalid email’ is returned.
You can add the validations for each field in the form.
Number of parameters to be passed varies based on number of parameters defined in the User-Defined function. E.g if the function selected has two parameters defined then two placeholders will be displayed.
Validations are applicable only for Jiffy tables and not for Doc tables.
Fields in the form are validated as per the business requirement.
If the validation rules set in the user-defined functions are not met for the field, the error messages returned by the functions are displayed under the respective fields on the click of the Save button in the form.
