EA_OnRunParameterRule

This event is triggered once for each rule defined in EA_OnInitializeUserRules to be performed on each parameter in the selection being validated.

If you don't want to perform the rule defined by RuleID on the given parameter, then simply return without performing any action.

On performing any validation, if a validation error is found, use the Repository.ProjectInterface.PublishResult method to notify Enterprise Architect.
