If you are tlaking about FDM Validation rules in the check report then these are evaluated after the data has loaded to HFM. Therefore these cannot be used to stop data being loaded to the system. For HFM out of the box validation at the Validate step will check mappings and intersection validity and stop loads if there is failure for either. Anymore detailed validations of the type you seem to be considering would require a custom script to be created. To alter data in HFM via FDM it would have to be reloaded
in your opinion (or anyone else's) are FDM check reports needed/desired when the target system is HFM?
It all depends on your client requirements. But in my experience most clients generally do post load validations in HFM using validation accounts and aren't that bothered about having check reports.
Thanks SH. My experience has always been the same, I suggest to minimize redundancy and number of reports - esp if they can get the same information from HFM.
If you want to stop data from loading into HFM, then scripts need to be written for that purpose. FDM validation rules will not actually stop the data from loading. It will just check the data and spits out a check report.
Scripts can be written at different levels of the FDM process - before import, after import, before validate, after validate, etc.
Hope this helps.
