TypeDescription

VALIDITY

Validate data before adding it to the registry. The possible configuration values for this rule are:

  • SYNTAX_ONLY: The validation is syntax only.

COMPATIBILITY

Ensure that newly added artifacts are compatible with previously added versions. The possible configuration values for this rule are:

  • FULL_TRANSITIVE: The new artifact is forward and backward compatible with all previously added artifacts.
  • BACKWARD: Clients using the new artifact can read data written using the most recently added artifact.
  • BACKWARD_TRANSITIVE: Clients using the new artifact can read data written using all previously added artifacts.
  • FORWARD: Clients using the most recently added artifact can read data written using the new artifact.
  • FORWARD_TRANSITIVE: Clients using all previously added artifacts can read data written using the new artifact.
  • NONE: All backward and forward compatibility checks are disabled.
