Kyvos automatically validates many types of objects. Validation checks that the format of the data is correct. There may be warnings or the data may be invalid. 

To validate objects, click the  menu near the validation box, and click Validate

If there is an issue with an object, you will see Warnings in orange or Invalid in red on the page. Click the validation box to see details about the issue. When available, additional information to help resolve the issue is provided. You can also copy this information to the clipboard.

Invalid cube error details

Relationships

If the relationship is invalid, the measures or dimensions that are an issue are highlighted in red. Click the validation box for details. If there are invalid links, you will see an option to delete them by clicking the link at the bottom of the validation details dialog box.

After you delete a single link by selecting and deleting it, you need to manually validate the relationship.

Datasets

The invalid action is highlighted red and Invalid displays on the page. Depending on why there are warnings, the field or fields that contain the issue may be displayed in red.

Cubes

When the cube is invalid, the measures or dimensions that are an issue are highlighted in red. Click the validation box for details. If there are warnings, the validation box is orange.

Some validation issues give you the option to update the cube. When you view the validation error details, you can click the Update cube item. After the cube updates, validate it again, and it should be valid.

If you remove a dataset or file in the Dataset Relationship Designer and replace it with one using the same name and field names, you will need to update the cube before the cube will validate.

TIP

The cube will be invalid if any measure doesn’t have a valid relationship with any of the dimensions, or if any dimension doesn’t have a valid relationship with any of the measures.

If a cube is invalid, the error message indicates the dimension or measure name and indicates where you need to check the arrow directions in the dataset relationship and possibly change the arrow direction to make the relation valid.

You can also validate calculated members and expressions used in cubes.

Properties

You can validate the syntax of functions or external tasks in the Properties dialog box for that function or task.
