Validating a Business Rule from the Rule Designer

When you create or debug a business rule, you can validate it in the Rule Designer.

  • Validate a Financial Management business rule created with Financial Management application administration against Financial Management only.

  • Validate a Planning business rule created with Planning application administration against Planning only.

  • Validate an Essbase rule from an Essbase application against Essbase only.

  • Validate an Oracle General Ledger rule from an Oracle General Ledger application against Essbase only.

To validate a business rule from within the Rule Designer:

  1. In the System View, expand the application type, the application, the calculation type, plan type, or database, and Rules.
  2. Right-click the rule you want to validate, and select Open.
  3. In the Rule Designer, select Actions, then Validate, and do one of these tasks:
    • If you are working with a Financial Management rule, select Consolidation.

    • If you are working with a Planning rule, select Planning.

      Note:

      If you are working with business rules in an application created with Financial Management or Planning application administration, you can validate against only the application in which the rule is created.

    • If you are working with an Essbase application and rule (including those created for Oracle General Ledger applications), select Essbase.

    • If you are working with an application created with Planning application administration, and working with a Planning rule, select Planning.

    If the rule validates successfully, then a message is displayed letting you know that validation was successful. If the rule does not validate, then errors are displayed.
