Validation sequence

The following figure shows the validation process sequence in Server. This is the order in which the validation checks occur. After extraction, the field formatter and then the validation rules are processed for each field.

In the figure, the arrows show how the field state may change during validation checks. For example, a field formatter can keep the current field state or change a valid field state to invalid. However, the formatter cannot change an invalid field state to valid. A validation rule can only change a field state from invalid to valid when the Make uncertain results valid option is selected.
