Hi Adam,

Follow below steps

Go to Workbench (

Paste below url on search box then click on Excute


Then you'll find all the Validation rules(click on records) on Salesforce

Hi, thank you for your response, however it doesn't help.  I need to be able to see an actual readable list of all validation rules within salesforce.

All this is is a bunch of record IDs that I need to manually copy and paste individually at the end of my salesforce URL to find out which validation rule each one is.

Hi Mani, those links are actually very helpful, however how do I install SublimeApex/Sublime Text 3 plugin?

Hi @adam
You can also click on 'Expand all' to see all records with their url's. Clicking on them one by one does not display their url but when you click on expand all, everything is listed.
You can Use Tooling API from Developer Console and write SOQL query to retrive all validation rules from all objects.

Here is the example of the query:
SELECT Id, CreatedDate, CreatedBy.Name, EntityDefinition.DeveloperName, ValidationName FROM ValidationRule

Here is the documentation for more info:

Try using this string - ?q=Select+ErrorMessage+From+ValidationRule 

In the workbench REST Explorer...
hey @Adam
if you are working on validation rules and if you want validation rules so
you have to use Tooling API because normally you can't access that object 
thank you

Hi Adam Kraus,

This is easy to find using the Standard salesforce option like Workbench or Developer Console using SOQL Using this you can check all your Validation Rules in one go.
