The following are items to consider when using the Chained Compliance Steps to create RegEx Compliance tests.

  • If a "Beginning With" has been defined, you must also define an "Ending With". 

  • You must have a Scope definition or a Rule definition, or both. 

  • If a test contains Steps, there must be at least one Step with a Rule defined within the Step. 

  • A Rule cannot have the same "Input source" as the Step. 

  • You cannot forward reference a Step. For example, if you have Step 1 and Step 2, and Step 3 (in that order) Step 1 cannot access variables from Step 2 or Step 3. 

  • You should not move a Step out of order (doing so may break the dependencies). 

  • Steps referred to must exist.
