What is the validator and how do I use it?

Post by support »

The validator is a useful little tool built into the Plum Voice Platform that lets you validate your VoiceXML code and scripts against the Plum VP DTD before you actually pick up the phone and dial into them.

When configuring a DNIS from within the Plum VP Configuration UI, there is a "Validate" button that can be used to validate your script (either in the scratch pad or at a remote URL).

Your script will always be validated against the Plum VP DTD installed on the local system. If your script file contains a DOCTYPE declaration that specifies some other DTD, that DOCTYPE declaration will be ignored.
