View impacted targets

Follow this procedure to view the targets impacted by items, a request, or a project/stream. This enables you to check what targets may need to be rebuilt if you change a source file.

To view impacted targets:

  1. In the web client, in the content pane of the My Current Project, Items, Requests, Projects, or Deployment tabs, select the items, request, or project for which you want to view impacted targets. If you do not select any objects, impacted targets will be displayed for the current project.

  2. In the menu area, click Build and select Show Impacted Targets. The Show Impacted Targets wizard opens.

  3. From the Build Configuration list, select the build configuration for which you want to view impacted targets.

  4. From the Build Stage list, select a deployment stage. To select a work area, select <none>.

  5. From the Build Area list, select a build or work area.

    Click Next.

  6. Choose target selections for the target list:

    Show all targets from build configuration Displays all targets from the build configuration.
    Show final targets only Does not display intermediate targets.
    Show foreign items Displays items that are related to items in a different project or stream.
    Show side-effect targets Displays files created at the same time as the main target, such as a compile listing.
    Show predicted targets Display targets based on a previous revision of the item. This is relevant when the selected revision has not yet been built.
    Include targets impacted by related requests Considers child requests as well as the parent request.
  7. If you change target selections, click Re-query to repopulate the target list.

    For each target in the Targets list the following build dependency information is displayed:

    Target The name of the target as defined in Dimensions Build.
    Filename The filename of the target or mask as defined in Dimensions Build.
    Found In

    The relationship of the objects that you are going to build to the target. Can be one of the following:

    • Build Config: matches a rule in a build configuration (explicit relationship).

    • BOM: named in a bill of materials (BOM) from a previous build (implicit relationship).

    • Build Config/BOM: matches both of the above (explicit and implicit).

    • <blank>: no matches were found for the selected objects.

    Build Config The build configuration that you selected. The configuration version may be different from that in the Build configuration list (the latter is ignored when this data is processed).

    Can be one of the following:

    • Prediction. The relationship is based on a previous revision of the item.

    • Foreign. Is related to an item in a different project or stream.

  8. Click Cancel.
