The Validation reports panel provides a list of results for a series of tests executed on published metadata and services. Click on the download icon to download the test result directly. Green checkmarks indicate that the ETF report is valid. Red X's indicate errors or a test that did not execute. Users can choose re-run the ETF tests for all resources listed by clicking the «Run all tests» button. Alternatively, users can re-run a single test by clicking the circular arrow icon next to the download icon. The yellow warning icon appears for resources with conformance classes that require manual checks.

A set of default conformance classes are executed on dataset metadata, download and view service metadata, and services, and can be configured in the theme. Tests check for INSPIRE compliancy. The number and type of tests executed on your metadata and services reflect your compliancy requirements. Visit Configure validation for more information. Direct download WFS service testing is not currently supported.
