Workflow validation report

The validation report summarizes the results of each separate workflow validation.

Validators display three notification levels: CRITICAL, WARN, and INFO. The designer can publish a workflow that returns WARN or INFO level validation, but not a workflow that returns an overall validation level of CRITICAL.

Header summary

The header of the validation report summarizes the entire validation run against the specified workflow.

  • Validate Summary: The overall score reflects the most severe notification level encountered during the validation.
  • Total checks performed: The total number of validations run is also broken down to show the number at each notification level.

Report columns

The body of the report displays the results of each individual validation check that was performed. The columns are Type, Level, and Message. You can sort and filter these columns as you would any list.


Table 1. Workflow termination and external dependencies
Name Implication
Info Provides information about the current workflow version. An example of an information level message is one that names the lowest common table in the workflow. Workflows at this validation level are considered valid and publishable.
Warning Alerts the user that the validator detected anomalies in the workflow that might compromise its executability. An example of a warning level message is one that alerts you to a missing activity input transition. Workflows at this validation level are considered valid and publishable.
Critical Names a workflow element containing a critical error that prevents the workflow from executing successfully. Examples of this are missing or invalid subflows and missing transitions. Workflows at this validation level cannot be published or run in production.


The validation message provides a detailed description of the results, including table names, update sets, and other specifics.
