Check for Multiple Values with a Single Rule using Regex and Match

Real-Life Mapping Scenario

We are receiving an inbound x12 EDI 850 (Purchase Order) where we need to test the N104 value for various values. We have 2 options to check for these values.

  • 1. Create multiple instances of the same rule and add an conditional rule that checks for a unique value
  • 2. Create a single instance of the same rule and a single conditional rule that checks for ALL the unique values

In our example below, we will check for ALL the unique values in a single rule

Ruleset Rules Set-up

In our ruleset we set-up a Composite Rule and apply the Match Rule Condition.

Comparing Regex Value Against Input Value

After the Match Condition is applied, we will test the N104_VN value against multiple values such as 7777, 195800, 103008, 7036, 101406 and etc.
