Validating a package

After designing your package, you should validate it to ensure it will run jobs without failing. The validation checks the package for design-time errors, such as:

  • dataflow doesn't end with a destination component
  • Not all components are connected
  • Incorrect syntax of all component fields, including expressions
  • Variables used in fields are not defined

Note: The bucket and path connections in Source and Destination components are not validated.

Validation takes around a minute, depending on the complexity of the package.

To validate a package:

  1. In the package designer, click the blue tick (save and validate package) icon.
  2. The package is saved then the validating window appears.
  3. If validation succeeded, a message is is displayed that no errors were found.
  4. If validation failed, the errors list appears with details on about the errors that were found. You can either:
    1. fix the errors and click revalidate.
    2. close the error list and fix it later by clicking ... (More options), then clicking Show error list ...
