New Features

UI - Path Finder and Call GraphThe Path Finder tool has been improved with the addition of a new feature that allows a Call Graph to be displayed from the selected source object (rather than having to choose a target/destination object). See Note that this new feature is in beta and will be improved/updated in future releases of CAST Imaging: if you have feedback about this feature, please let us know.

Feature Improvements

UI - Application to Application link count notificationFollowing the successful generation of Application to Application links, a notification will be displayed listing the total number of links (not new links) that have been generated between applications.
UI - Right hand panel improvementsThe UI design for the right hand panel has been changed for a better user experience. We now show "Legends", "Object Properties" and "Source Code" under the same panel. The panel can also be resized, closed completely or popped out into a standalone dialog box. See
UI - Saved views - Avoid using existing nameCAST Imaging now will not allow users to save a view with a name that already exists. A warning message is now displayed when this is attempted. See
UI - Data Call Graph scope - filter based on link typesWhen filtering in the Data Call Graph scope, the ability to filter on link types accessing the output has been added (previously this filter was not available). See
UI - Notify objects count popup changesThe behaviour of the "Notify objects count" popup (which is displayed when attempting to drill into a new view which contains more objects than configured in CAST Imaging "Preferences" and which would therefore impact performance)) has been modified to allow the user to download a .CSV file containing the list of objects that would be displayed in the resulting view. In previous releases, the popup served only as a warning that the resulting view would contain a large number of objects. See for more information.
UI - Change node and object icons from SVG to font renderingAll icons used for nodes and objects in the view now use font rendering instead of SVG files. This has been done primarily to improve performance when the view is loaded, which is particularly useful when a large number of nodes/objects are present in the view.
UI - Show path improvementsThe Show path feature has been improved: 1) now ALL the available paths from source to target node are highlighted and 2) it is no longer possible to select a target object from a list - instead source and target objects are selected directly in the view. See
UI - Minor change to Input/Output itemsThe highilighting used for Input/Output items in the Transaction and Data Call Graph scopes has changed slightly: instead of "flashing" red circles around the items, the red circles are static. See or
UI - Current view searchIt is now possible to select all (using a "Select All" checkbox) items returned by the current view (search mostly used when searching for objects which have common names). See
UI - App to App Dependencies - External LibrariesWhen an Application search includes an External Library, any matching Applications will be displayed along with the External Library object. See
UI - Transaction and Data Call Graph filtering improvementsThe UI design of the Transaction and Data Call Graph filtering mechanism has been improved and sort icons added (alphabetical/and by number of objects in the Reduced Call Graph). See or
UI- Large graph rendering stop buttonA new Stop Layout button has been implemented which replaces the existing stop icons in the bottom right corner and has the same behaviour as those icons. When a graph containing over a certain number of objects (specified in Preferences) is requested by the user, instead of displaying information in the bottom right corner as in previous releases, a message is now displayed in the centre of the view. See
UI - Full Call Graph CountCount is added to the Full Call Graph option in Graph Options button. See
Technical - APIs to support custom iconsTwo new APIs have been added to allow users to create custom object icon mappings. See
Technical - Cyper query APIIt is now possible to send cyper queries via the CAST Imaging API using "/imaging/api/domains/{tenantName}/apps/{tenantName}/resources/query". This query is also available in the interactive Swagger documentation.
UI - Change to the display of "escalated" linksThe UI now displays escalated links slightly differently: instead of displaying only the type of links between the two items, now, the word "References" is displayed, along with the type of link. See
