A mandatory segment is missing from an EDI X12 document.  The missing segment is detected by the trading partner start shape and reported in the 997.

How to reject this document so that it will not be processed in the process?

After the trading partner shape, add a Business Rules shape to check for any empty values.

The Business Rules shape can detect the empty value and route the document down the Rejected path so that it will not be processed.
