ShiftLeft: Changes to Same Object Path (0055) is a popular analyser at Customers for several years, as a way of highlighting other transports sitting further forward or back (or both) in the Path that contain the same Objects as the transport(s) being analysed.
Customers have raised a few suggestions on how to enhance this Analyser, which have been included as new parameters on 0055 analyser as part of ActiveControl 8.40 to enable the following:
Results in in any Transports associated against Business Tasks associated to the same Project from being excluded from the Analyser results. This can be useful for avoiding ‘spurious’ warnings relating to changes to the same objects in other Transports that are already planned to be delivered as part of the same Project.
Exclude Merge parameter
Result in any Merge transports containing the same objects from not being shown as part of the 0055 Analyser results.
Exclude TOC parameter
Results in any Transport of Copies (TOCs containing the same objects from being excluded from the Analyser results. This can be useful for Customers that are using TOCs as part of their testing process – to avoid them from being presented when using the Analyser to look forward in the Path to see what other transports contain the same objects
New (optional) EXCLUDE_PROJECT, EXCLUDE_MERGE and EXCLUDE_TOC parameters can be configured as required, to reduce the number of Analyser warnings depending on the Customer’s own requirement.
