Benefits and Description

When developing attribute rules that check against values of attributes, several new cases can now be specified. A set of negative rules for working with strings is available, which includes: NOT_EQUALS, NOT_BEGINSWITH, NOT_ENDSWITH, NOT_CONTAINS.

These additions expand the available conditions that can be checked against object attributes, and provide a more complete ability to validate required business conditions. The new conditions can be used in any attribute rule configuration with any of the other existing checks that are available.
