Finding Interface References
You can search a namespace to find where production components such as data transformations are referenced by other production components. For example, you can search business rules to find the ones that call a certain data transformation. You could also find all the DTLs that use a custom function, which is useful when determining the impact of modifying the function. To begin searching for interface references, select Interoperability > View > Interface References.
To begin a search, specify the name and type of the component that you want to find within other production components. You can search for references to the following components:
Business processes (BPL) — Searches for references to BPL business processes with the specified name. Note that you cannot search for references to business processes that cannot be viewed in the Management Portal, for example, custom coded processes.
Business rules — Searches for references to business rules with the specified name.
Data transformations — Searches for references to data transformations with the specified name.
HL7 schemas (if available) — Searches for references to HL7 schemas with the specified name.
Lookup tables — Searches for references to lookup tables with the specified name.
Utility functions — Searches for references to utility functions with the specified name.
The search finds partial text matches. For example, entering alert and selecting all of the component types could find references to a data transformation Demo.MsgRouter.EmailAlertTransform as well as a lookup table AlertTable.
By default, your search finds references to the specified component within:
Business hosts — Finds references within the configuration settings of business services and business processes, but does not find references that are embedded in the code of a business host class. For example, you can find the name of a business rule in the BusinessRuleName setting of a routing process.
BPL business processes — Finds references in a BPL business process as seen on the BPL Editor page. For example, you can find the name of a data transformation in a Transform activity.
Business rules — Finds references within a business rule.
Data transformations — Finds references within a data transformation.
You can limit your search to references within only certain types of components by deselecting the result types options.
Clicking a reference in the results list opens that component in the Management Portal. For example, clicking a reference found in a data transformation opens the transformation in the DTL Editor. For business hosts, you can open the production that contains the business host.
