When script validation is requested, a test compile is performed to ensure that compilation issues should not occur when a map is run. As SmartConnect compiles different parts of map processing at different times, the validation of scripts may involve more than just the validation of the currently viewed script.
SmartConnect scripts are groups together for validation as follows:
|•||Destination definition, map line restrictions and map columns are compiled into a single group|
|•||Map pre tasks are compiled into a single group|
|•||Document tasks are compiled together|
|•||Map post tasks are compiled into a single group.|
Where possible when validating scripts, validation messages will flag errors in scripts compiled, as well as the area that contains the error(s).
