French term or phrase: du caractère bloquant ou non
Le ticket poursuit les traitements uniquement si le formatage de l’ISDN n’est pas indispensable aux SI avals :
• si la nature de l’ISDN est ‘ID’, la fonction retourne un code d’erreur (code d’erreur 25 pour l’isdn correspondant, 95 pour l’isdn correspondant traduit, 42 pour l’isdn 3ème interlocuteur, 59 pour l’isdn MSRN).
Cette erreur relève du recyclage manuel.
• sinon (si la nature de l’ISDN est différente de ‘ID’) et EU_DISABLE_GRAV_ERR_ANUM est désactivé, la fonction ne retourne aucun code d’erreur, et le ticket poursuit le traitement.
• Sinon (nature ≠ ID’ et EU_DISABLE_GRAV_ERR_ANUM actif), on parcourt la table PRM_GRAVITE_ERR_ANANUM (table DU CARACTERE BLOQUANT OU NON de l’ISDN pour les SI avals)

critical nature or otherwise
Explanation:
"Bloquant" usually refers to an error that means the system is unable to continue. In IT contexts, I usually call this "critical" - I think it would fit here.

In the old days, you would see references to "fatal errors", but this seems less frequent nowadays.

You'd probably need to expand the description slightly to make it read better in English - table indicating the critical nature... or something similar.
There is actually a clue in the table name - GRAVITE_ERR = seriousness (of the) error.

agree  Robin Levey: I like critical - but it's not the same as a fatal error - a critical error stops the process but is/should be recoverable, a fatal error is ... what it says!

  -> yeah, probably - hopefully we've moved on from the days when any sort of error brought systems crashing down around our ears - a good point :-)

agree  SusanMurray: brings back memories of developers being asked to make sure that crashes didn't kick you straight out but gave you half a chance to save your data...All that said and done, critical sounds right.

agree  wfciwfci: I would prefer to use the adjective "blocker" which is one degree more severe than "critical" and is commonly used in IT circles.
