This page documents a new feature that is available in edgeSuite v3.6 or higher.
Upon saving changes to the pipeline, the system will scan for any issues with Dataset Variables (Node Variables). Any potential issues found are displayed in a report that allows the user to choose the appropriate solution for each problem. Many of the solutions offer propagation support, which will automatically fix all related issues downstream on the pipeline the same way. This report makes it much easier to change the behavior of an entire pipeline chain and make changes to Datasets in the middle of a pipeline.
You may navigate through all the reported issues in two different ways. The pipeline view above the report allows you to pan and view the pipeline chain that has issues. Clicking a dataset node in the topology will highlight the issue in the list below. You may also just scroll the report and handle each issue one at a time. The report is in depth order when possible.
The report identifies four different pipeline issues:
This issue is usually encountered when an upstream node variable has been deleted.
Optionally you can choose to have the removal propagated downstream to all other datasets with the same issue.
This issue is usually encountered when an upstream node variable has been created.
More Details Below Table
This issue is usually encountered when you add a node variable and do not use it anywhere.
This issue is usually encountered when you rename a node variable.
Choose a local variable to satisfy the upstream variable. Any downstream datasets must satisfy this local variable.
You can use the control on the left to choose an existing local variable, create a new variable, or edit the currently selected variable.
