  • expectation_suite_identifier – Optionally, an instance of the ExpectationSuiteIdentifier class.

  • checkpoint_identifier – Optionally, an Identifier for the Checkpoint.

  • kwargs – named parameters that are specific to a given Action, and need to be assigned a value in the Action's configuration in a Checkpoint's action_list.
