In OIM, you deploy a custom validation event handler for the RoleUser/Create, ApplicationInstance/Provision, and/or Entitlement/Provision entity-types. From the Self Service console, if a request is submitted for a single beneficiary and the validation fails, the validation handler correctly throws the custom error message specified in the ValidationFailedException object, and it displays in an error popup.

If a request is submitted for multiple beneficiaries, a parent request is created with multiple child requests. In this case, the validation handler executes for each child request.  If the validation handler throws an exception for any of the child requests, the request will end with a 'Request Failed' status, but opening the 'Request Failed' status link in the child request does not display your custom validation exception message; instead it displays 'null'.
