Available with Data Reviewer license.
You can use the Metadata check to validate stand-alone metadata files (stored in XML format) against multiple federal and international metadata standards. Optionally, advanced users can select a custom schema to validate stand-alone metadata documents. A single Metadata check can be configured to validate an entire folder of stand-alone XML documents and requires only that you know which metadata standard the documents are based upon.
Once you have defined the criteria for the check, you can configure the notes and a severity rating. The notes allow you to provide a more specific description for the feature that has been written to the Reviewer table and are copied to the Notes field in the Reviewer table. The severity rating allows you to indicate how important the results from a check are in terms of your quality assurance/quality control processes. The lower the number, the greater the priority the check's results have.
