Main Page

The Structure References feature allows you to see structures and maintainables which have been used (References) when the structure was added/edited and in turn which structures refer to (Referenced by) the chosen structure.

The option is available from the Home menu and may be accessed by any user, whether logged in or not.

The example above shows the ECB's Data Structure EXR1 which is available on the Metadata Technology Demo site: https://demo.metadatatechnology.com/FusionRegistry/data/datastructure.html.

See this article Load Structures for more information on how to obtain these structures.

Generate Report

Two system-wide reports are available:

All Structures Cross-Referenced Report

This report consists of 3 worksheets.

  1. The first worksheet lists all cross-referenced maintainables in the Registry with a count of the structures each one references and a count of the structures they are referenced by.
  2. The second worksheet contains a list of all cross-referenced maintainables in the Registry, showing which maintainable they reference.
  3. The third worksheet contains a list of all cross-referenced identifiables in the Registry, showing which identifiable they reference

Examples are shown in the image below.
