This needs to be addressed.
You have all but destroyed DataAssist with what you have done.
Why do you have Validation on a SEARCH PAGE?
I think that it is incredibly arrogant of you to release a product which forces validation on pages where it is arguable as to whether it is needed or not - and the extend of your validations is onerous to say the least.
What business do you have of implementing password requirements, phone number and date formats.
Having spent as much as I have on this product I expect it to be at least as useful as it formerly was. I do not expect to have to remove useless code that was included without my asking for it.
Prior to DataBridge you could create functional Data Management pages in under 2 minutes and then directly add the validations you wanted and none that you did not.
