This new BETA feature allows system administrators to create Validation Definitions to identify anomalies in data stored in Aeries. Each Validation Definition will include a specially crafted SQL query that returns the relevant results. Validation Definitions are organized into Validation Groups. Each Validation Group will be delegated to a set of Responsible Users and/or User Groups. The Data Validation feature includes a scheduled process that can run on a daily basis. When the Data Validation process runs, each user will get an email showing a summary of errors that they are responsible for fixing. The Data Validation Results page will display details of the results tailored to each user based on security. The results can be linked directly to relevant pages in Aeries that the user should visit to resolve the issue. As the user works through their list of results, they can manually refresh a subset of their results to confirm that the resolution was successful. Aeries is providing a set of sample validations which can be loaded to get started right away. This feature is being released for beta testing by early adopters. If you are interested in this feature, please contact Aeries Support for information on enabling it. https://support.aeries.com/support/solutions/articles/14000101896-data-validation-beta-
