Impact analysis

The Impact view analyzes object usage in a project, and performs impact analysis and cross-referencing.

  1. Open the Window menu.

  2. Select Show View > Impact. The Impact view opens in Designer.

  3. From the Project Explorer, open a resource such as a metadata object, a mapping, or a process.

  4. From inside the resource, select any object to analyze it. The Impact view displays the different ways this object is used.

  5. Double-click one of the objects in the list to edit it.

The action menu in the Impact view has some tools:


  • Save Cache and Rebuild Cache explicitly save and refresh the cached cross-references in your workspace. These actions are typically done automatically, but you can force the operations if you want.

  • Refresh Console refreshes the cache console: it recalculates mappings, states, files states, cross-references, and so forth.
