Identity Cloud data validations

Validate the data entered in an Identity Cloud field before that data is written to a user profile. Validations help guard against a user entering, say, the value ABCD in a field meant to the user's birthday or telephone number.


Data validations

  • Suppressed words validation. Verifies that the field value does not include any of the words included in the specified API client setting.

  • Suppressed email domains validation. Verifies that the supplied email address is not from any of the domains included in the specified application setting.

  • Format validation. Uses regular expressions to verify that the field value meets the required format.

  • Match validation. Verifies that the value supplied for the field is identical for the value supplied for another field.

  • Maximum length validation. Verifies that the value of a field contains no more than the specified number of characters.

  • Minimum length validation. Verifies that the value of a field contains no fewer than the specified number of characters.

  • Required validation. Verifies that a non-null value has been entered for the field.

  • Unique validation. Verifies that the value of the field is unique throughout the application.

  • Allowed words validation. Verifies that the value entered for the field appears in the set of allowed words found in the specified API client setting.
