Producing Impact Analysis Data


Serena ChangeMan Builder enables you to specify a build template variable that triggers the production of impact analysis data during a build. You can add the variable to the build dialog boxes in Dimensions clients or to the Run Build wizard in Dimensions Build. The output is placed in the following file:

MVS: <build area root>.XML(IMPACT)

Windows: <build area root>\impact.xml

UNIX: <build area root>/impact.xml


To produce impact analysis data:

  1. In Dimensions Build, or any of the Dimensions clients, launch the Run Build wizard or dialog box.

  2. On the Options page enter the following in the Other build options field:


For information about running builds from the clients see the User’s Guide and the Dimensions for z/OS User’s and Administrator’s Guide.
