Unable to submit Faclon due to XML validation error. In this case, the <timeout> property tag is causing the issue:

ERROR: Bad Request;javax.xml.bind.UnmarshalException <br>- with linked exception: <br>[org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; lineNumber: 11; columnNumber: 14; cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Invalid content was found starting with element 'timeout'. One of '{"uri:falcon:process:0.1":sla, "uri:falcon:process:0.1":timezone, "uri:falcon:process:0.1":inputs, "uri:falcon:process:0.1":outputs, "uri:falcon:process:0.1":properties, "uri:falcon:process:0.1":workflow}' is expected.]

ROOT CAUSE: Property tags in Falcon process xml need to be in the correct order.

RESOLUTION:The tag needs to follow the correct order in the xml schema. This order is the same as the listed properties in the Falcon documentation:

Falcon Entity Specification

For example, the <timeout> tag must be after order and before frequency in the xml
