    Hi

    I'm having some trouble figuring out how to handle validation using user stories. I've come up with the following approach but I'm not sure if it is correct.

    Is the following a valid user story?

    As a Comptroller
    I want to prevent a customer from being disabled when it has unpaid invoices
    So I can ensure that the customer pays their invoices

    If not, how would I ensure that this is properly tracked?

    Thanks

    As an administrator who disables customer accounts,
    I would like to be prevented from disabling a customer account if the account has unpaid invoices
    so that customers have a chance to pay their invoices.

    Acceptance Criteria: display a message to the administrator with information about why the account cannot be disabled.

    Perhaps this can be written as a specific acceptance criterion for a more general user story, e.g.

    Given a customer account
    Where at least one invoice is unpaid
    Then the account will be enabled
