DBE LAB Testbeds

What are DBE LAB Testbeds?

DBE LAB Testbeds are self-service testing environments for electronic message validation. They are used to test if the content and structure of a document generated by your own information system is following a pre-agreed standard. The user uploads a test document to the testbed and the testbed generates a test report that explicitly states what parts of the document need to be corrected in order for it to pass the test rules (standard). They are a particularly useful tool to help with integrations and making sure that everything is working as intended.

With the help of the test report you can start making adjustments to the system that generated the tested document. There is no need to arrange multiple meetings just to get to know what was wrong in the document and what should be corrected. This saves a lot of time since meetings can sometimes take a long time to schedule.
