  3. Expand the Validators section.

    A list of defined validators displays.

  4. Click Add.

    A new validator is added to the Converters list with the default name New Validator x .

  5. (Optional) Change the default validator name to a unique, descriptive name in the Display name field of the General section.

  6. (Optional) Type a description in the Description field.

  7. Type an ID in the Validator ID field.
