Data Validation Rules

As a user of SAP in addition to the standard SAP data validation you can set up Sana specific validation rules.

You can access data validation rules either from the main window of the Sana Commerce solution (/n/sanaecom/webstore) or by calling the transaction /n/sanaecom/validate.

Step 3: Click Continue.
