The Workspace Validator is a tool that provides a baseline assessment of an ad Workspace. The tool evaluates the Workspace to ensure that it is coded properly for Sizmek Ad Suite (SAS) and does not contain any obvious technical errors.
This tool is designed to reduce the back-and-forth that is often required between the individual who sets up an ad and the developer. It is available outside SAS to maximize the amount of workflows it can accommodate, and ensure these basic assessments can be done as early and efficiently in your development process as possible, even before uploading to SAS.
This tool can analyze Workspaces for Standard Banner ads and Rich Media Banner ads.
Note: The Workspace Validator is designed to check compatibility and general requirements. It is not meant to be a substitute for quality assurance validation and does not include validation for any specific site requirements.
Note: Before you begin, verify that you have a Workspace with the following:
index.htmlfile in the root directory
At least one call to
A default image

See Understanding Validation Messages for a description of the messages.

(Optional) To share the results with another user, click Share. The URL is copied to the clipboard.
Depending on the validation, these messages are assigned a status:
Green: Passed validation.
Blue: Information message
Red: Failed validation
