Baseline Dependencies

When you select a Baseline on the 'Baseline Browser' tab, the three tabs in the lower half of the 'Reusable Asset Service - Baseline' view are updated with information from the Baseline. A Package might contain elements and diagrams that have relationships with objects in other Packages. When you generate a Baseline for that Package,  the name and Global Unique Identifier (GUID) of each Package containing these 'external' objects will be stored along with the Baseline and displayed in the 'Dependency' tab.

Note that Package A depends on Package B if any of these constructs (or their Tagged Values) in Package A reference elements in Package B:

  • Elements
  • Attributes
  • Operations
  • Operation Parameters
  • Diagrams
  • Connectors
