Business Rules

Business Rules are standard checks or constraints that are used to validate data within different fields based on defined rules. Below are the different types of business rules which can be configured in MDO: 

  • Dependency Rule: where value(s) in target fields are dependent on value(s) in source field(s). 
  • APIs: used to define complex rules using Java code. 
  • Duplicacy Check on a field or set of fields, determines duplicate data in the system. 
  • Metadata Rule: in which the innate constraints of the fields are checked. 
  • Missing Rule: where any missing field(s) can be checked. 
  • Regex Rule: in which a regular expression defines the rule through conditions and operators. 
  • User Defined Rule: when the user can configure a desired rule on a field or set of fields by a custom JavaScript or logic through UI. 
  • Lookup Table: in which certain target values can be set based on the source values.
