Validator Responses

When you navigate to a site that is using Commerce Cloud Einstein features, Validator instantly validates recommendation activities and sorting rules. The tool then provides particular responses, based on the activity it registers.

We recommend that you test your storefront with the Recommendation Validator to ensure expected operation. When Validator recognizes an event, an icon appears with the number of events it has detected.

This table shows different events and when they typically occur.
