Perform a complete dependency analysis

Performing a regular dependency analysis enables you to check whether references between items are configured correctly, and to prevent bad references from accruing.

Perform a dependency analysis

Perform a dependency analysis using Xoom Reporting. The References report shows all references within XoomXML; the Bad References report shows any items with references that cannot be resolved. Each can be generated by Xoom Explorer and Xoom Processor.

We recommend as best practice that you schedule a regular dependency analysis, ideally using Configuration Versioning.

The steps for completing a dependency analysis are as follows:

  1. Retrieve the All named query.
    For the purposes of dependency analysis, you want to retrieve the most complete picture of configuration possible.
  2. Generate the References report.
  3. Generate the Bad References report.
