Field updates

ULN validation


To validate the ULN, the system will:

  • check the ULN is in the correct format
  • check the ULN does not belong to another learner record

If the system finds that the ULN is correct and unique, it will save the updates. The page will refresh and show the updated information.

If the system finds that the ULN format is incorrect, it will not save the updates. The ULN will be removed from the page and you will get the following message:

‘The ULN is in the incorrect format, please update this and submit changes.’

If the system finds that the ULN format is correct but it is not unique, it will not save the updates. The ULN will be removed from the page and you will get the following message:

‘The ULN is not unique, please update this and submit changes.’

If you submit ULNs for multiple learners, the system will update all that pass validation.

To find which updates failed validation, search for records with blank ULNs.

When you add ULNs from a page of search results, the changes can only be added for one page at a time. You must submit them before you move on to the next page. If you try to move to another page without selecting Submit Changes you will get the following message:

‘Please submit your changes before continuing.’
