    • The validation page will load.
    • You will see listed the basic automated validations that the system will check the process for
  • Click Start Validation
    • Validation Statuses displayed
      • Pass
      • Fail (If a fail occurs the system will guide you to where the issue is, just read the message)
    • Click Close (either to fix a Fail or move on to Cut Live)

Checkpoint: The process status will have changed to Validated in the header of the page you are on & also in the Process List grid
