    Workspace - Restoring deleted objects

      If you have accidentally deleted objects from the Project Explorer, you can try to restore them. You can rely on the versioning system functionalities you are using - such as GIT or SVN - but if you can't there is an other option :

      • Right click on the parent element (project or folder) / Restore from local history...
      • the User interface will show the items which were recently deleted

       

       

       

      Impact Analysis - displaying the required and missing dependencies for an item

        When working on Projects, all the Metadata, Mappings, Processes and Templates might not be located at the same place.

        Most of the time, users choose to structure developments in multiple projects, centralize all Metadata, etc.

        This means that a Mapping, for instance, might depend on multiple Projects to work correctly.

        The Designer offers the possibility, for a given item (Project, Folder, Mapping, ...) to list all its required dependencies, and the missing ones.

        This can help users to find what is required, what is missing, and the potential place where it can be found.

        Building Packages

          A package is an archive containing all the needed files and folders to generate a delivery.

          Most of the time, a package is generated by the development team when they have finished working on a Mapping / Process.

          The package can then be used to generate the delivery that will be executed by the Runtimes.
