The operation of validating records in the Staging area should be performed by users with Read & Write access to the elements of all entities. For more information, see Security.
To validate records in the Staging Area and transfer them to the master database, do the following.
On the Menu pane, click Govern > Staging Area to open the [Staging Area] page.
In the Status area of the [Staging Area] page, Talend MDM Web User Interface displays details about the records that may require validation, as shown in the image below.
Click the Start Validation button to start the validation process.
Note that you can filter the records for which you perform the validation process. See Filtering which records to validate for more information.
In the Current Validation area, a progress bar shows the progress of the validation. You can cancel the validation at this stage by clicking the Cancel button.
When the validation process is complete, its details are shown in the Previous Validation(s) area, as shown in the image below.
Filtering which records to validate
You can validate all pending records at the same time, or you can filter which records to validate in order to process only a subset of all pending records. When filtering records, you can filter on Entity, Status or Date/Time, or any combination of these three.
To filter records when performing the validation process, do the following.
In the Status area of the [Staging Area] page, select the With filtering checkbox and then click Start validation.
The filtering window opens.
To perform the validation process only for those records related to a specific entity or entities, select the corresponding check box(es) in the Entity column.
One or more entities that have foreign key relationships with the selected entity or entities are displayed in the corresponding Dependencies column.
To perform the validation process only for records with a particular status, click Selected statuses, and then select the checkbox or checkboxes for the status concerned.
To perform the validation process only for records from a certain time frame, click the time frame which corresponds to your choice in the Date/Time Filter section (Today, Yesterday, Last Week or Last Month), or click Custom to specify a particular date range.
Once you have specified the filter criteria to use, click OK to launch the validation process.
