Associating batch jobs with a product class

The product library can be used to store business rules that extend standard database validation. Enhanced validation rules are created by using Data Reviewer and storing the rules as checks in a batch job. After a product class and product class version have been created, you can associate batch jobs with the product class version.

There are three types of batch jobs that can be associated with a product class: Attribute, Spatial, and Reviewer.
