Schema validator check tool

The schema validator tool validates that the passed in configuration conforms to a given schema. The configuration may be JSON or YAML. To validate the entire config, please refer to the config load check tool.


The tool expects two required inputs:

  1. The schema type to check the passed in configuration against. The supported types are:

  1. The path to the configuration file.

Optional inputs include:

  1. --fail-on-deprecated: Will force failure if any deprecated fields are used.

  2. --fail-on-wip: Will force failure if any work-in-progress fields are used.


If the configuration conforms to the schema, the tool will exit with status EXIT_SUCCESS. If the configuration does not conform to the schema, an error message is outputted detailing what doesn’t conform to the schema. The tool will exit with status EXIT_FAILURE.


The tool is included in the tools image.

The tool can also be built locally using Bazel.

bazel build //test/tools/schema_validator:schema_validator_tool

The tool takes a path as described above.

bazel-bin/test/tools/schema_validator/schema_validator_tool  --schema-type SCHEMA_TYPE  --config-path PATH
