The following placeholders can be used in this message:

  • {{ value }} - The current (invalid) value.
  • {{ compared_value }} - The expected value.
  • {{ compared_value_type }} - The type of the expected value.

Type: Array(String) | String | Nil Default: nil

The validation groups this constraint belongs to. AVD::Constraint::DEFAULT_GROUP is assumed if nil.


Type: Hash(String, String)? Default: nil
