Validation Redirected from XMLdation Service API Guide/v1/API Resources/Validation

    API Validation

    Validation resource takes a file for validation. Validation is asyncrohonous process where input data is queued for validation. The validation results are not returned by Validate -resource but instead following data is returned:

    • Location pointing to object in Queue - returned in response Header
    • Queue Id which is unique identifier for the validation in the queue - returned in response Body

    Supported payload content-types

    File data can be sent to validate -resource in the the following formats:

    • multipart/form-data
      • text/xml
      • text/plain
      • application/zip
    • text/xml
    • text/plain
    • application/zip

    Compressing the payload

    File payload can, and is recommended to be compressed to ZIP binary data before sending it to the XMLdation API Service. If binary data is detected as valid ZIP file, XML file inside the compressed ZIP is extracted and validated automatically.

    Note that for multipart/form-data payload the file is considered as ZIP binary in following cases: mimetype is application/zip OR filename extension is .zip. Otherwise payload is handled as XML data.
