Add missing referenced File for Module

A Module in a Feature deploys files which are included in the feature as ElementFile. The rule checks if this referenced file is available or not.

CheckId SPC015302
TypeName AddMissingModuleFileToFeature
Severity CriticalError
Type Module

Ensure that the referenced File in a Module is available. Check the name and location of the File.
The deployment of the Feature may fail if SharePoint cannot find the referenced file.
See sample below:

<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
   <Module Name="ModuleWithFile">
      <File Path="ModuleWithFile\SampleFileSource.txt" Url="ModuleWithMissingFile/SampleFileUploaded.txt" />

In the sample above the file 'SampleFileSource.txt' must be available in the parent feature, in subfolder 'ModuleWithFile'.

To suppress this violation in XML SharePoint code add the following comment right before the XML tag which causes the rule violation. Learn more about SuppressMessage here.
