Successful Validation

If the script validation has completed without errors, an information dialog will appear.

Note: This does not mean the script has actually retrieved something successfully (the credentials may still be wrong, for example). This means the script can run and is not malformed. Always check for any errors in the browser, even if the validation is successful.
