The standard Invalid and Invalid Duplicate validation is the default when creating validation services. Those service types work when the app user is online or offline. However, conditional validation allows you to add a special count and duration-based conditions to invalidate scans. For these options, the app-user will need Internet connectivity. Additionally, you’ll need to create your own Postback URL to incorporate these specific validation options. But, you don’t need your own server and you don’t need to be a programmer! Follow the instructions below and, if you’re having trouble, we can build it for you on request.
Note: You need to have a paid plan to use this feature as you will need to be able access your API key.
Follow our guide to set up your conditional validation
Your conditional validation will apply to all database values associated to a specific service. Although different services can have different conditions, you might have cases where the conditions need to be different within a single service.
To override the primary conditional validation, you can add simple, structured text in your validation database’s response text (column 2). For example, let’s say most of your values are valid for 24 hours but some need to be valid for 48 hours. You can set up the service for a 24 hour validation (duration=1440) from the first scan but over-ride that to validate specific values at 48 hours if the structured text duration=2880 is in the response. Refer to the instructions for further details.
