Every entity is created in the “PRE_CREATED” state. Once an entity is ready to be validated against its schema, it will transition in another state - RESOLVED, if the entity is valid according to the schema, or RESOLUTION_ERROR otherwise. If an entity in an “RESOLUTION_ERROR” state is updated, it will transition to the inital “PRE_CREATED” state without performing any validation. If its in the “RESOLVED” state, then it will be validated against the entity type schema and throw an exception if its invalid.

Possible values are: PRE_CREATEDRESOLVEDRESOLUTION_ERROR
