package validator

import "gopkg.in/go-playground/validator.v8"

Package validator implements value validations for structs and individual fields based on tags.

It can also handle Cross-Field and Cross-Struct validation for nested structs and has the ability to dive into arrays and maps of any type.

Why not a better error message? Because this library intends for you to handle your own error messages.

Why should I handle my own errors? Many reasons. We built an internationalized application and needed to know the field, and what validation failed so we could provide a localized error.

if fieldErr.Field == "Name" {
	switch fieldErr.ErrorTag
	case "required":
		return "Translated string based on field + error"
	default:
	return "Translated string based on field"
}

Validation Functions Return Type error

Doing things this way is actually the way the standard library does, see the file.Open method here:

https://golang.org/pkg/os/#Open.

The authors return type "error" to avoid the issue discussed in the following, where err is always != nil:

http://stackoverflow.com/a/29138676/3158232
https://github.com/go-playground/validator/issues/134

Validator only returns nil or ValidationErrors as type error; so, in your code all you need to do is check if the error returned is not nil, and if it's not type cast it to type ValidationErrors like so err.(validator.ValidationErrors).

Custom Functions

Custom functions can be added. Example:

// Structure
func customFunc(v *Validate, topStruct reflect.Value, currentStructOrField reflect.Value, field reflect.Value, fieldType reflect.Type, fieldKind reflect.Kind, param string) bool {

	if whatever {
		return false
	}

	return true
}

validate.RegisterValidation("custom tag name", customFunc)
// NOTES: using the same tag name as an existing function
//        will overwrite the existing one

Cross-Field Validation

Cross-Field Validation can be done via the following tags:

- eqfield
- nefield
- gtfield
- gtefield
- ltfield
- ltefield
- eqcsfield
- necsfield
- gtcsfield
- ftecsfield
- ltcsfield
- ltecsfield

If, however, some custom cross-field validation is required, it can be done using a custom validation.

Why not just have cross-fields validation tags (i.e. only eqcsfield and not eqfield)?

The reason is efficiency. If you want to check a field within the same struct "eqfield" only has to find the field on the same struct (1 level). But, if we used "eqcsfield" it could be multiple levels down. Example:

type Inner struct {
	StartDate time.Time
}

type Outer struct {
	InnerStructField *Inner
	CreatedAt time.Time      `validate:"ltecsfield=InnerStructField.StartDate"`
}

now := time.Now()

inner := &Inner{
	StartDate: now,
}

outer := &Outer{
	InnerStructField: inner,
	CreatedAt: now,
}

errs := validate.Struct(outer)

// NOTE: when calling validate.Struct(val) topStruct will be the top level struct passed
//       into the function
//       when calling validate.FieldWithValue(val, field, tag) val will be
//       whatever you pass, struct, field...
//       when calling validate.Field(field, tag) val will be nil

Multiple Validators

Multiple validators on a field will process in the order defined. Example:

type Test struct {
	Field `validate:"max=10,min=1"`
}

// max will be checked then min

Bad Validator definitions are not handled by the library. Example:

type Test struct {
	Field `validate:"min=10,max=0"`
}

// this definition of min max will never succeed

Using Validator Tags

Baked In Cross-Field validation only compares fields on the same struct. If Cross-Field + Cross-Struct validation is needed you should implement your own custom validator.

Comma (",") is the default separator of validation tags. If you wish to have a comma included within the parameter (i.e. excludesall=,) you will need to use the UTF-8 hex representation 0x2C, which is replaced in the code as a comma, so the above will become excludesall=0x2C.

type Test struct {
	Field `validate:"excludesall=,"`    // BAD! Do not include a comma.
	Field `validate:"excludesall=0x2C"` // GOOD! Use the UTF-8 hex representation.
}

Pipe ("|") is the default separator of validation tags. If you wish to have a pipe included within the parameter i.e. excludesall=| you will need to use the UTF-8 hex representation 0x7C, which is replaced in the code as a pipe, so the above will become excludesall=0x7C

type Test struct {
	Field `validate:"excludesall=|"`    // BAD! Do not include a a pipe!
	Field `validate:"excludesall=0x7C"` // GOOD! Use the UTF-8 hex representation.
}

Baked In Validators and Tags

Here is a list of the current built in validators:

Skip Field

Tells the validation to skip this struct field; this is particularly handy in ignoring embedded structs from being validated. (Usage: -)

Usage: -

Or Operator

This is the 'or' operator allowing multiple validators to be used and accepted. (Usage: rbg|rgba) <-- this would allow either rgb or rgba colors to be accepted. This can also be combined with 'and' for example ( Usage: omitempty,rgb|rgba)

Usage: |

StructOnly

When a field that is a nested struct is encountered, and contains this flag any validation on the nested struct will be run, but none of the nested struct fields will be validated. This is usefull if inside of you program you know the struct will be valid, but need to verify it has been assigned. NOTE: only "required" and "omitempty" can be used on a struct itself.

Usage: structonly

NoStructLevel

Same as structonly tag except that any struct level validations will not run.

Usage: nostructlevel

Exists

Is a special tag without a validation function attached. It is used when a field is a Pointer, Interface or Invalid and you wish to validate that it exists. Example: want to ensure a bool exists if you define the bool as a pointer and use exists it will ensure there is a value; couldn't use required as it would fail when the bool was false. exists will fail is the value is a Pointer, Interface or Invalid and is nil.

Usage: exists

Omit Empty

Allows conditional validation, for example if a field is not set with a value (Determined by the "required" validator) then other validation such as min or max won't run, but if a value is set validation will run.

Usage: omitempty

Dive

This tells the validator to dive into a slice, array or map and validate that level of the slice, array or map with the validation tags that follow. Multidimensional nesting is also supported, each level you wish to dive will require another dive tag.

Usage: dive

Example #1

[][]string with validation tag "gt=0,dive,len=1,dive,required"
// gt=0 will be applied to []
// len=1 will be applied to []string
// required will be applied to string

Example #2

[][]string with validation tag "gt=0,dive,dive,required"
// gt=0 will be applied to []
// []string will be spared validation
// required will be applied to string

Required

This validates that the value is not the data types default zero value. For numbers ensures value is not zero. For strings ensures value is not "". For slices, maps, pointers, interfaces, channels and functions ensures the value is not nil.

Usage: required

Length

For numbers, max will ensure that the value is equal to the parameter given. For strings, it checks that the string length is exactly that number of characters. For slices, arrays, and maps, validates the number of items.

Usage: len=10

Maximum

For numbers, max will ensure that the value is less than or equal to the parameter given. For strings, it checks that the string length is at most that number of characters. For slices, arrays, and maps, validates the number of items.

Usage: max=10

Mininum

For numbers, min will ensure that the value is greater or equal to the parameter given. For strings, it checks that the string length is at least that number of characters. For slices, arrays, and maps, validates the number of items.

Usage: min=10

Equals

For strings & numbers, eq will ensure that the value is equal to the parameter given. For slices, arrays, and maps, validates the number of items.

Usage: eq=10

Not Equal

For strings & numbers, ne will ensure that the value is not equal to the parameter given. For slices, arrays, and maps, validates the number of items.

Usage: ne=10

Greater Than

For numbers, this will ensure that the value is greater than the parameter given. For strings, it checks that the string length is greater than that number of characters. For slices, arrays and maps it validates the number of items.

Example #1

Usage: gt=10

Example #2 (time.Time)

For time.Time ensures the time value is greater than time.Now.UTC().

Usage: gt

Greater Than or Equal

Same as 'min' above. Kept both to make terminology with 'len' easier.

Example #1

Usage: gte=10

Example #2 (time.Time)

For time.Time ensures the time value is greater than or equal to time.Now.UTC().

Usage: gte

Less Than

For numbers, this will ensure that the value is less than the parameter given. For strings, it checks that the string length is less than that number of characters. For slices, arrays, and maps it validates the number of items.

Example #1

Usage: lt=10

Example #2 (time.Time) For time.Time ensures the time value is less than time.Now.UTC().

Usage: lt

Less Than or Equal

Same as 'max' above. Kept both to make terminology with 'len' easier.

Example #1

Usage: lte=10

Example #2 (time.Time)

For time.Time ensures the time value is less than or equal to time.Now.UTC().

Usage: lte

Field Equals Another Field

Alias Validators and Tags

NOTE: When returning an error, the tag returned in "FieldError" will be the alias tag unless the dive tag is part of the alias. Everything after the dive tag is not reported as the alias tag. Also, the "ActualTag" in the before case will be the actual tag within the alias that failed.

Here is a list of the current built in alias tags:

"iscolor"
	alias is "hexcolor|rgb|rgba|hsl|hsla" (Usage: iscolor)

Validator notes:

regex
	a regex validator won't be added because commas and = signs can be part
	of a regex which conflict with the validation definitions. Although
	workarounds can be made, they take away from using pure regex's.
	Furthermore it's quick and dirty but the regex's become harder to
	maintain and are not reusable, so it's as much a programming philosiphy
	as anything.

	In place of this new validator functions should be created; a regex can
	be used within the validator function and even be precompiled for better
	efficiency within regexes.go.

	And the best reason, you can submit a pull request and we can keep on
	adding to the validation library of this package!

Panics

This package panics when bad input is provided, this is by design, bad code like that should not make it to production.

type Test struct {
	TestField string `validate:"nonexistantfunction=1"`
}

t := &Test{
	TestField: "Test"
}

validate.Struct(t) // this will panic

Fields may be provided in a namespaced fashion relative to the struct provided i.e. NestedStruct.Field or NestedArrayField[0].Struct.Name and returns nil or ValidationErrors as error You will need to assert the error if it's not nil i.e. err.(validator.ValidationErrors) to access the map of errors.

type ValidationErrors Uses

type ValidationErrors map[string]*FieldError

ValidationErrors is a type of map[string]*FieldError it exists to allow for multiple errors to be passed from this library and yet still subscribe to the error interface
