View Validation Warnings
Each validation includes a count of warnings that occurred in the flow of data. The error level indicates issues that impair the accuracy, quality, and/or security of the data, as defined by the validation rules. The error level of the returned data is determined in each individual rule. Examples of error levels include:
- Fatal : Indicates a critical error in the data. Validations with fatal errors cannot be marked complete until the errors are corrected.
- Special Warning : Indicates a potential discrepancy in the data that must be examined carefully and corrected as needed. Special Warnings do not prohibit a validation from being completed.
- Warning : Indicates a possible error or inconsistency in the data, which should be reviewed for accuracy. Warnings do not prohibit a validation from being completed.
