Sitecore Standard Template: Validators Section

This blog post contains information about the fields in the Validators section of the standard template in the Sitecore ASP.NET web Content Management System (CMS) and Experience Platform (XP). For more information about the standard template and topics mentioned in this blog post, see the links in the Resources section at the end of this page.

The Validators section of the Sitecore standard template contains the following fields used to configure data validation for the item:

  • __Quick Action Bar Validation Rules (N/A): Item validators to apply in the Quick Action Bar.
  • __Validate Button Validation Rules (N/A): Item validators to apply in dialog that appears when a CMS user clicks the Validation button in the Proofing group on the Review tab of the ribbon in the Content Editor.
  • __Validator Bar Validation Rules (N/A): Item validators to apply in the Validation Bar.
  • __Workflow Validation Rules (N/A): Item validators for the validation workflow action to apply.
  • __Suppressed Validation Rules (N/A): Item validators supressed for this item.

Other than __Suppressed Validation Rules, these fields often have values in standard values for data templates rather than in individual items.
