Hi Community!

My question is in the middle between impact analysis and reverse engineering: I have a solution and I want to be able to connects dependent objects to their callers. I'm not interested in deep detail, not about single columns, not about origin steps for fields. I just need a sort of graph to answer questions like: who calls this ktr? What will stop if this job fails?

Is there any facility in PDI about this? I read about data lineage but -as said- it provides too much information (eg: the information level I need is more stable during development because changes into KTRs are more frequent than NEW KTRs creation).

A home made approach would be to extract dependent KTRs and JOBs from xml source files but I do not want to reinvent the wheel...

Any suggestion on your side?

 

My regards

Virgilio
