Validator Configuration and Error Messages


A bill validator is a simple set of defined rules that are checked against a sigma bill producing a pass/fail result. These results can then be manipulated by the validation system to produce a set of alerts of various severities to the user. This document provides a description for the majority of validators currently available for setup with the TEAM Sigma software.
