Validating a configuration file

All configuration files must be validated before you can open them in Analyst's Notebook or before making them available to the analysts (issued and copied to a central location). The Save command will always validate your configuration, but you can choose to validate it without saving to obtain a report of any current problems with your configuration.

To validate a configuration file, select File > Validate while your configuration file is open.

iBridge Designer validates the types and all other configuration settings and reports any problems to you. You must correct any invalid parts of your configuration before you can open it in Analyst's Notebook or issue it.

Some public sets and queries may become invalid as a result of changes made to the configuration file. The public sets and queries will not be validated as part of this operation. You will need to validate the sets and queries in a separate operation that you must carry out using iBridge from within Analyst's Notebook.
