Why is the DIS Validator showing a Minor issue when a connector parameter contains a Unit that's not in the validation list? I was expecting this to be allowed. Am I wrong? If so, what is it impacting?
I don't want to have the issue in the DIS Validator. What is the recommended action here?
Minor: Unknown unit 'Members'. Param ID 'x'. (line xxxx col x) [2.9.4]
DIS version 18.104.22.168
Thank you in advance!
DIS keeps a list of all frequently used units, to push towards consistency between drivers by keeping a single unit format for each unit (e.g. avoid some people switching between 'min', 'mins', 'minutes', ...).
Of course, you can require a unit that does not match any of the units that are in the list currently. Indeed, 'Members' does not seem to be on that list (yet). If you can confirm that none of the other units in the list match your requirement, you could create a task for the DIS team to add the unit to the list. However, if there is really low value in the unit being added to DIS (a very custom unit) then you are probably better off suppressing the error.
