Validate Metadata Quality¶
Colectica Designer can check the quality of your metadata. Built-in metadata validation checks include:
Ensure variables have defined types
Ensure questions have defined response types
Ensure variables have names
Ensure variables are in variable groups
Ensure items have labels
Ensure data files have summary statistics
More checks will be added in the future. Let us know what you would like to see.
Custom validation checks can be created as Colectica Designer Addins.
Follow these steps to check the quality of your metadata.
Navigate to an item.
Click the Validate Metadata Quality button on the ribbon.
Choose where you would like to save your report.
Colectica will create your metadata validation report.
