Rule Execution and Missing Data
This article explains how Rapptr processes the data it is given. When a positions file is uploaded to Rapptr there are 3 stages of processing:
1. Position File validation: are you providing mandatory properties? Is the file correctly formatted? are input data formats correct? etc. If so Rapptr will begin running the rules.
2. Rule checking: Every rule is checked against all relevant portfolios and entities. During checking, if a rule requires data which is not in the file (e.g. for a rule checking the percentage of voting rights, the TotalVotingRights figure is missing), Rapptr will mark the result of this rule "Unknown" and move on to the next rule.
3. Missing Data table: At the end of every check run, Rapptr processes all Unknowns and creates a list of unique data issues, e.g. If TotalSharesOutstanding was missing for one issuer and 3 rules were flagged as "Unknown" because of this, you would have 1 single Missing Data issue.
The following articles will describe all the various scenarios a user could potentially be facing after Rapptr has run its rules.
