Finding rules by dependency

Updated on January 14, 2022

Save development time and find rules by dependency with the Referencing Rules tool. Instead of conducting a full-content search, you can quickly locate a rule in context by tracing the relationship between the rules in your application.

For example, before you remove steps from a data transform, you can use the Referencing Rules tool to find the rules that the removal affects.

Note: Some rules do not support the Referencing Rules tool, because their references are determined at run time.
  1. Open a rule whose dependencies you want to check.
  2. Click ActionsView references.
  3. Review the list of rules in the Referencing Rules and Referenced Rules tabs to understand the relationships between the rules.
  4. Optional: To open any of the rules listed in the tabs in their own, new tab, click the Edit icon.
  5. Optional: To filter the results, on the Referencing Rules tab, click the Settings icon, and then choose any of the following options:
    • To narrow the search results to the rules used only in the application, in the Rule Sets list, select Application Only.
    • To include rules with the same name in the same class path, select the Show overrides check box.
    • To include other versions of the rule, select the Show Versions and Circumstances check box.
