How to make it mandatory to enter a value in a collection?

Is it possible in Wave 7 CLM - Contract Management to make it mandatory for a collection to have at least one record?

We have created a custom collection and placed it on the Supplier tab of agreements and we would now like to make it mandatory for at least one record to be entered into this collection.

So far, I have tried setting the UI_override on the field name of one of the fields in the collection to mandatory but that did not work.

In WYSIWYG for Master Agreements, collections are uneditable.

I have thought of creating an additional simple hidden field, making that mandatory and then developing a script to copy that field into the first field of the collection, but that seems to be an unnecessarily complex solution.

    Hello Chris,

    I think this can be acheived by writing a script that checks the size of the collection. If the size = 0, then raise an exception. This script can be made to execute On Validate target.

    Hope this helps.

      Thank you. This is a good suggestion.

      I am hoping that there is also a configuration solution, rather than only a scripting solution, purely from a cost saving point of view. If not, it may be a suggestion for SAP to consider in future releases.
