Impact Analysis in HP SM7.x

In case I am going to delete a field in a Interactions. Is there a way to identify the connections across all modules for the particular field. I can do a find in format, formatctrl, link etc. Other than a find, do we have a way to identify the entry of field say ticket.owner across the application?

Follow up question - why do you want to delete that field? You mean delete from table or you want to clean the data in that field in existant records?

 

If you are talking about deleting it from tablem, then why just not hide it and don't use?

Hi,

you can try to use *afind.strings application to look for same filed in various application/module.

Sure you can do that with *afind but the root question is why he does need to delete that field. just dont use this field and thats it.

Yes Vadim you are right about hiding and not to use the field and it will be wise to do so.
But it all up to Dharmi.

Thanks for the input. Actaully , I am not deleting, I was such quoting an example.

I am more interested to know the ways to find the impact of a input across modules.

Say I am changing a input variable in Service desk module, I would like to know , if there is a impact of this in any other forms/modules/tables, etc.

Find is the utility, I am using currently, just did not feel effective enough

Hello,

I wont touch the system variables as if can affect more then you can imagine. It can be tailored even in RAD which you wont modify to your new variables used instead of OOB once.

 

Find is one of the mechanism which can be used for checking of impact, but still there is not guarantees that you perform find on all places where it can be used.

 

As a result, better to add your logic tailoring then to remove the OOB one.
