Validating Document Metadata References

Use the Documents page (IB_DOCUMENT_VALIDT) of the Document/Metadata Validation utility to identify any documents that reference metadata not in the database.

To validate document metadata references:

  1. Access the Document/Metadata Validation - Documents page (PeopleTools > Documents > Document Utilities > Document/Metadata Validation).

  2. Click the Search button.

    Any documents in the database that reference metadata not in the database appear in the Documents grid.

  3. Manage the results by performing any of the following actions:

    • Clear the metadata reference.

      Select the Select check box next to each document for which to clear the invalid or missing reference, and then click the Update button.

    • Examine the document definition and import or create the missing metadata.
