Validate Data Item

Description

This operation validates that the path (for file shares) or connection string (for databases) for a specific data item is accessible to every server node in the site by checking against the JSON representing the data item, ensuring that the data item can be registered and used successfully within the server's data store.

Validating a data item does not automatically register it for you. You need to explicitly register your data item by invoking the Register Data Item operation.
