This guide demonstrates how to load an Expectation Suite and validate data without using a Checkpoint. This might be suitable for environments or workflows where a user does not want to or cannot create a Checkpoint, e.g. in a hosted environment.
As part of the new modular expectations API in Great Expectations, Validation Operators have evolved into Class-Based Checkpoints. This means running a Validation without a Checkpoint is no longer supported in Great Expectations version 0.13.8 or later. Please read Checkpoints and Actions to learn more.
