A sample use case presents such where form validation is only required for record update, not for record creation.

This is possible by adding an empty section in a form to store this script below. This script will remove form validation if primary key does not exist (which is in add mode).

import org.joget.apps.app.service.AppUtil;
import org.joget.apps.form.service.FormUtil;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.Element;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.Form;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.FormData;
import org.joget.apps.form.model.FormRowSet;

public FormRowSet load(Element element, String primaryKey, FormData formData) {
    if (primaryKey == null) {
        Form form = FormUtil.findRootForm(element);
        removeValidator(form, formData);
    return null;

public void removeValidator(Element e, FormData formData) {
    Collection children = e.getChildren(formData);
    if (children != null) {
        for (Element child : children) {
            removeValidator(child, formData);

//call load method with injected variable
return load(element, primaryKey, formData);
