Google Search Console Issue Validation May Be Working

A couple of weeks ago we reported that Google Search Console said "issue validation is temporarily disabled due to upcoming changes in the report." Well, it might be working for some folks, even back when I first reported it. Note - the message is still posted in the coverage report section but submitting the "validate fix" command may end up working.

Here is a screen shot of the notice:

Google Search Console Issue Validation Disabled

Now, I submitted a request to validate a fix on that day to test it and it took almost a week to get a response, but I did get a response:

Gsc Issue Validation Workings

Shay Ohayon also did it a bit later and got a positive response in only a single day as he noted on Twitter:

Gsc Issue Validation Working

So maybe it works despite Google saying it does not work?

You may see the validate fix button like Dave Davies sees as well:

But do note, I did see that button back when I first reported this news.
