Validating records

In the metadata editor, click the Validate button to trigger the validation.

The right panel displays all validation results by levels:

Click the thumbs up or down icons to display errors. Errors reported in blue are for information only and will not affect the global validation of the record:

The editor also reports error messages where applicable (since not all error messages can be shown in the editor):

Once a record is validated, the validation status is saved and is displayed in the editor board page:

Validation status can be filtered using a facet in the editor board. Catalog administrators can force validation every time an editor leaves the metadata editing interface (see Configuración del sistema).

To configure validation levels (see Configuring validation levels).

In case of INSPIRE records, remote validator can also be used (see INSPIRE validation)
