The system checks the content of imported ULN files to ensure the data is correct and meets both format and business rules, such as:
the file contains all expected fields in the correct order
the file contains at least one record
the ULN is not blank
the ULN does not already exist
If a single record within a file fails format validation this will not cause the entire file to fail.
Once the system has successfully validated the file, it will update the learner’s application with the new ULN.
You can find more details of the file format validation rules in the Technical Proposal. This is part of the Technical Specifications for the Learning Provider Portal. If you need a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
