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.

Result Types

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.
