CC message is blocked from sending



The CC message having a maximum of 35 lines in the F79 field is not sent to the CC party. The original message is, however, sent successfully.

Error Messages

**F79 should not Exceed 35 lines CC correspondence will not be sent

Steps to Reproduce

1) Create a Swift correspondence, and select a CC party.
2) Fill in the F79 field with 35 lines.
3) Submit the original message.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in custom application code or rules. 

Field 79 in swift messages can have a maximum of 35 lines as per standard.

Even though SmartInvestigate provides validation for this field 79 to be 35 lines, it fails to provide validation for field 79 when correspondence is sent to another party by selecting Send to CC.


Perform the following local-change.

Add a validation in PostCreateSwiftMessage activity to check if CCParty is selected.

 If selected, add a code to check the length of Block4. If the Block4 content length is greater than 28 lines, throw a validation message stating-

​"F79 should not Exceed XYZ lines, otherwise CC Correspondence will not be sent."

With this validation in place, user is warned before the original party message is sent out.
