It's an undocumented feature in config/config.rb.  You'll need to add the

AppConfig[:container_management_barcode_length] = {"MSS" => {:min => '14',
:max => '14'}, "THE" => {:min => '14', :max => '14'}}

Note that this uses the repository code to match the validation to its
repository.  If a container has no barcode, it automatically validates -
for our case, barcodes must be exactly either 0 or 14 characters long.

Hope this helps,
