Testing a validation rule
With validation rules configured and enabled for an address block, it’s great to test the changes to see if everything is working as expected.
- Navigate to a record in Salesforce on the object you have configured.
- Edit the address block to breach a configured validation rule.
- Attempt to save the record.
If everything is configured correctly, your validation rules will prevent the record from saving and provide an alert for what needs to be rectified. After rectifying the data, the record will then save.
