Are field validations possible in Contentstack?

Can we perform some form of validation of the Content Fields to restrict Content Editors from making incorrect entries? e.g Max number of characters allowed for a field, restrict special characters in a Name field or validate an email or phone number entry. Any help will be much appreciated, Thanks.

You can find validation rules that can set from the advanced field properties.That allows to set min/max characters, regex, along with Validation error message.


Also Sharing link to Contentstack documentation that might be helpful to understand validation with fields.Click here  
I hope that helps!

In the event that you need to do something very custom, you can take a look at this unofficial custom field validation that is an example from the Solutions Architects team.

And some other possibly useful extensions that many of our customers use!
