   $config as element(configuration),
   $database-id as xs:unsignedLong,
   $field-path as element(db:field-path)
) as empty-sequence()


This function validates the specified field path. If the specified path is not valid, it throws an exception, otherwise it returns the empty sequence.

config A configuration specification, typically as returned from one of the Admin module functions.
database-id The ID of the database (for example, xdmp:database("myDatabase") ).
field-path The field path specification, typically the result of a call to admin:database-get-field-paths .


xquery version "1.0-ml";

import module namespace admin = "http://marklogic.com/xdmp/admin"
      at "/MarkLogic/admin.xqy";

let $config := admin:get-configuration()
let $databaseid := xdmp:database("Documents")
let $field := "myField"
let $field-path :=
   admin:database-get-field-paths($config, $databaseid, $field)
admin:database-validate-field-path($config, $databaseid, $field-path)
(: returns empty if the patha is OK, throws an exception if the path
   is not valid :)
