Available Options

schemes

type: mixed [default option]

This option is required and represents the name of the number scheme used to validate the credit card number, it can either be a string or an array. Valid values are:

  • AMEX
  • CHINA_UNIONPAY
  • DINERS
  • DISCOVER
  • INSTAPAYMENT
  • JCB
  • LASER
  • MAESTRO
  • MASTERCARD
  • VISA

For more information about the used schemes, see Wikipedia: Issuer identification number (IIN).

message

type: string default: Unsupported card type or invalid card number.

The message shown when the value does not pass the CardScheme check.

payload

type: mixed default: null

This option can be used to attach arbitrary domain-specific data to a constraint. The configured payload is not used by the Validator component, but its processing is completely up to you.

For example, you may want to use several error levels to present failed constraints differently in the front-end depending on the severity of the error.
