Let’s say there is a field ‘Mobile_Number’ which is been used as part of multiple flow services, dictionaries, DB tables, adapter services. I wanted to list down all the webMethods elements which has usage of this ‘Mobile_Number’ field. Please share your inputs.
Thanks a lot for spending time and helping me out on this.
I am using wM8.2 version.
Typical question you have asked.
If you are able to parse flow.xml file then probably you are able to find a few. Let’s see what other say on this. It is something which we come across in our work when there are any changes either at source or target systems.
There is no out of the box “Find” feature to do the same. I would suggest to make use of OS commands such as GREP instead of writing custom implementation which involves loading xml and parsing.
Thanks both for your help.
Both the ways are time taking, I tried with grep option, i found a few hundred files, its difficult to go through each.
Any other optimal way to get this done.
As it’s a most common requirement at some time or other, SAG should design a service to fulfull this requirement …
please open a feature request/idea in Brainstorm and post us the id so we can vote on it.
Humm,I agree. Can someone please share me link.
you need to have access to Empower ("Extranet & KB" should be sufficient).
Then you can go to "Products & Documentaion" → "Feature Requests in Brainstorm".
It is also available directly from the Main Navigation Menu (last item at the bottom).
we can create a flow service to implement your logic to find the any variable used in any of the package,map,flow step.
i will come come up with the logic in quick time.
You can do CTRL+F by selecting the server in the package navigator and search by the variable name, it will list all the elements which are using the variable eg. num1.
Try on Designer 9.12.
Please post the code sample if you have one. Thanks
