Provides UI to build custom data validation rules for data in Nautobot

Project description

Data Validation Engine



An App for Nautobot.

Overview

An app for Nautobot with a UI to build custom data validation rules for Source of Truth data.

The Data Validation Engine app offers a set of user definable rules which are used to enforce business constraints on the data in Nautobot. These rules are tied to particular models and each rule is meant to enforce one aspect of a business use case.

Supported rule types include:

  • Regular expression
  • Min/max value
  • Required fields
  • Unique values

Another feature within the app called Data Compliance can audit any object within Nautobot ad-hoc according to a set of rules that you can define programmatically or from the built-in data validation rules. Rather than only checking for adherence to specified rules during the creation or modification of objects, Data Compliance will run a job that produces compliance statuses across all objects including pre-existing ones (such as all existing devices).

Contributing to the Docs

You can find all the Markdown source for the App documentation under the docs folder in this repository. For simple edits, a Markdown capable editor is sufficient - clone the repository and edit away.

If you need to view the fully generated documentation site, you can build it with mkdocs. A container hosting the docs will be started using the invoke commands (details in the Development Environment Guide) on http://localhost:8001. As your changes are saved, the live docs will be automatically reloaded.

Any PRs with fixes or improvements are very welcome!
