DITA Validate and Check For Completeness

Attention: This script is bundled with the all platforms distribution of Oxygen XML Editor. To run the script, you are required to purchase a special scripting commercial license.

The Validate and Check For Completeness action that is available on the toolbar of the DITA Maps Manager view provides the ability to validate a DITA map or a DITA Open Toolkit project file with a large array of settings. The settings dialog box has an Export settings option that can be used to export the settings to an XML configuration file. Once the settings are exported, you can use the validateCheckDITA.sh script (found in the scripts subfolder inside Oxygen's installation directory) to run a validation on a DITA map or DITA Open Toolkit project file and report the results in a separate XML document.

Sample Command-Line Arguments for the Validate and Check for Completeness Script:

sh scripts/validateCheckDITA.sh -i inputFile [-c contextId] [-s settingsFile] [-r reportFile]

A public example of using such a script as a GitHub action for reporting errors in pull requests on DITA project can be found here: https://github.com/oxygenxml/blog/blob/master/.github/workflows/workflow.yml. The GitHub action calls a Gradle script target named runValidation: https://github.com/oxygenxml/blog/blob/master/build/build.gradle.
