Starting from CAST AIP 8.3.23, CAST Architecture Checker will no longer be installed as part of the CAST AIP setup, whether installing CAST AIP from scratch or on a server where a previous release of CAST AIP exists. CAST Architecture Checker has evolved into a standalone component where all feature requests and bug fixes are now managed. This standalone component can be downloaded from CAST Extend (https://extendng.castsoftware.com/#/search-results?q=archichecker).
Up-to-date documentation can be found here: CAST Architecture Checker.
This section provides a detailed description of the contents of the Action menu within the CAST Architecture Checker:
|Connect and select application||Enables you to connect to a CAST Management Service to work online and check the model interactively. See Connect and select application for more information.|
|Change application||Use this option to change the CAST Management Studio Application against which you are checking the model. See Change application for more information.|
|Create layers from User Defined Module selection||Enables you to automatically create layers from Modules. See Using the Action menu options to automatically create layers for more information.|
|Create all layers based on application User Defined Modules|
|Create layers from Analysis Unit selection||Enables you to automatically create layers from Analysis Units. See Using the Action menu options to automatically create layers for more information.|
|Create all layers based on application Analysis Units|
|Check all layers||This option will check the content of your Architecture Model against the contents of the currently selected CAST Management Studio Application. The CAST Architecture Checker will display the number of objects that match a specific layer or set. See Check all layers for more information.|
|Check overlapping layers||This option will display a list of objects that are considered to be overlapping, that is, that appear in multiple layers. See Check overlapping layers for more information.|
|Check model||This option is similar to the Check all layers option - in addition to the results returned by Check Content, this current option will also return information about violations to the Architecture Model that you have created. See Check model for more information.|
