Cached Project Validation Results

Version 3.1.23.12

Get Cached Project Validation Results

Returns the cached results of a previous project validation calculation, if any. Returns http status 204 No Content if no validation results exist.

Validating the content of all the files in a project can be computationally intensive for large projects. Use this API to simply fetch the results of the most recent project validation rather than revalidating the entire project from scratch.

A value of "stale": true in the response indicates that the project has changed since the cached validation results were computed. The cached validation results may no longer reflect the current state of the project.
