Crawler Validation Framework

While building new integrations for CluedIn, you will want to make sure that you are building your integrations in the recommended way. The crawler validation framework will help guide a developer to produce a Clue that is of the highest readiness for processing. The validation framework will only run during Debug / Developer mode and will not run once deployed to production.

The validation framework acts as a guide to warn a developer if they may have forgotten to do something important such as setting a Uri, setting a Name. It might be the case that you don’t haave these properties (which is fine and normal) but it is also one of those pieces that is easy to forget - hence the framework.

A developer can supress the validators at a Clue Producer level in the cases where you can confirm that you won’t be able to produce what is expected for a Clue.
