Issue of soft warning versus hard validation for metadata

  • Current there is  the metadata health check process.
  • At this point there is a “soft warning” if metadata elements are missing.  The submitter gets a notice of missing metadata elements when they “save”  but the entity is still accepted.  
  • Possible downside to “hard validation” is that we could stop some entities from publishing new entities in InCommon? 
  • We should give advance warning to the community when we move to “hard validate.”    
  • Perhaps allow  the hard validation to be made soft if an entity provides a reason for their inability to provide complete metadata.
