In ValidationHub Rules provide a way of customising a check to suit the needs of a particular project or many.
If you navigate to the rules page, here you can view and manage all the rules previously created. Use the table to create new rules, edit or delete existing rules.
Note: In the free tier of ValidationHub you can have a maximum of up to 3 rules. To allow for more rules please upgrade your account to a pro license.
Creating a new rule
To create a new rule select the Add Rule button on the rules page. By default, rules can be based on well known international standards. The standards currently supported include BS 1192:2007 + A2:2016 and BS EN ISO 19650 1&2:2018.
Note: If you would like to request another international standard please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you select your chosen standard click next. You will then be prompted to name the rule and give it a small description.
On the final page you can chose to customise the values accepted for each of the fields. The values specified here will be used as the only possible values accepted in the document names. If the fields are left blank then only specific standard rules apply, such as field length. All values should be added comma-separated, with or without spaces.

Once you click save, you are redirected to the rules homepage. The newly created rule should now be visible in the table.
Editing a rule
To edit a previously created rule, find the rule in the table and click on it. This expands the details of the rule in view mode. You can see the details and the customised values of the rule as specified on creation. To edit these click the Edit Rule button in the top right to enable editing mode.
Once in editing mode make any necessary changes needed. Each change you make will be logged in the count. When happy, choose to save the changes.
When happy, choose to save the changes. You will prompted with a confirmation window that describes each of the changes that will be made.
Deleting a rule
In some cases you may no longer need a rule. To delete a previously created rule, find the rule in the table and click on the three dot icon in the right most column. In the window select the option to delete.
