Before Analyzing in IFS Update Analyzer, specify Base UPD path, Target UPD path, Modification path and Configuration path.
|Base update||path to current files on which the modification is based on|
|Target update||path to the update that is to be upgraded|
|Modifications||path to customization files or files which are changed|
|Configurations||path to configurations files extracted from IFS Cloud|
The differences between the base file and target file for each of the corresponding modification file will be checked and then the impact of each file included in the modification will be shown. All files must be inside their relevant component folder. The relative path for a file must be the same in all three locations. When it comes to configurations, the tool will analyze if any interface changes are affecting the configurations set up in IFS Cloud. In order to analyze the configurations, you must first extract them.
Steps to Analyze Files
- Set the paths of Base Update and Target Update, and the paths to either or both of your Modifications and Configurations (i.e. you can decide to analyze only Modifications, only Configuration, or both).
- Press the Load button to load the files.
- Press the Analyze button to analyze.
Before analyzing, the files need to be loaded. Clicking on the Load button loads all the files in the modification folder. Additional information on each file such as Relative Path, Layered, Number of Overtakes, Number of Overridesare shown.
