Hi @Mr Ali and welcome to this community

Are you using a text field to enter IDs? Not something like a "multi-label" field in ConfiForms, no?

If a text field then you can set up a conditional validation rule, something like this


Example storage format:

<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="43cb5d70-d629-40b8-9046-c3dd31f69854" ac:name="confiform" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="formName">f</ac:parameter>
<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="a5e447e7-e1a8-4f0c-95e7-52e959a2bd4d" ac:name="confiform-entry-register" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="hideMetadata">true</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="type">Embedded</ac:parameter>
<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="864de13f-9e71-400b-bcf0-5531e89fa067" ac:name="confiform-field-definition" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">IDS</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldLabel">Enter IDS</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldDescription">comma separated, but not more than 5</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="type">text</ac:parameter>
<ac:structured-macro ac:macro-id="ea9621a5-8c59-4d06-bc75-d2886b5f17ab" ac:name="confiform-field-definition-rules" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="condition">IDS.split(,).asCount:&gt;5</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">You are not allowed to enter more than 5 IDs</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="action">Validation rule</ac:parameter>

Hope it helps


Hi Alex,

I followed your suggested steps,but not working

I added two Macro

first one is Confiforms Form field Defination

Here I put

Field name   IDS

Field label    IDS

Field Type    Text

Field description (optional)    comma separated, but not more than 5


on the 2nd Confiforms Rules for Field Definition

Field name     You are not allowed to enter more than 5 IDs

Condition  IDS.split(,).asCount:&gt;5

Action to execute *   Validation rule


Could you please check what need to change here

The condition is 


(in the storage format it gets escaped to be XML friendly) 

but in the demo I have recorded for you it is not escaped

Have you checked the screencast I have recorded for you?

Yes, I checked the recorded video, followed all the steps.But still after putting all the condition and parameter not able to limit the form

Really not sure I can help you here - provided a video, a storage format for the configuration for you to easy import...

Showed it works...

May be someone else can help better

I tired again today,its working. Thank you Alex
