The Analysis phase of the Hard Code Literals stage will provide the number of custom objects with Hard Coded Literals from each system and those which conflict.
Once the Analysis programs have run from the Operation section it is time to view the results, go to the ‘Results’ drawer and select the ‘Hard Code Literal’ then selects the ‘Analysis’ tab.
The screen below shows the number of objects in each system and the number of hard code literal conflicts found between the systems.
The buttons on this screen operate by clicking the right hand down arrow details on what each button does are as below.
The ‘Update’ button allows the user to run the programs for this phase individually, however, it is recommended the user does not use this and completes this through the operation drawer as this adds greater clarity.
The ‘Workflow’ button allows the user to open and close this phase.
The ‘Overview’ button allows the user to view the reports for this phase, see the Reporting section for more details.
On the hard code literals screen below, opening up an Object Type provides further folders where you can view more information about the objects in each object type.
Opening up the ‘All Literals’ folders lists all of the objects of this type in both systems.
Opening up the ‘All Conflicting Literals’ folders lists all of the objects in the selected object type in conflict across the two systems. Here opening up the object and viewing the literal types will give you a view of these hard coded literals.
