I have implemented multiple validations in base template field items and suppressed most of the validation in each children template standard values using the "Suppressed validation rules" field.

It works perfectly in Sitecore Content Editor when I fill in the fields.

Unfortunately in Experience Editor, the suppress validation is not considered and it looks like its validating all the applied validations. I have set the error level to fatal hence I'm not able to save any fields from Experience Editor.

What am I doing wrong, Or is this a bug from Sitecore?

This looks like a bug in Sitecore 8.3 update. Sitecore provided a fix regarding the same. It may be added to the upcoming update.

  • Can you please include the issue ID Sitecore has for this fix. So future people who find this post will have the ticket number to provide Sitecore.

  • @ChrisAuer Sitecore support asked me not to provide the fix in public forums since it was not tested thoroughly. I would recommend to raise a new ticket with sitecore.
