Target audience:

CAST Administrators

Although this extension is officially supported by CAST, please note that it has been developed within the technical constraints of the CAST Universal Analyzer technology and to some extent adapted to meet specific customer needs. Therefore the extension may not address all of the coding techniques and patterns that exist for the target technology and may not produce the same level of analysis and precision regarding e.g. quality measurement and/or function point counts that are typically produced by other CAST AIP analyzers.

    Why is it that Seibel is not supported in 8.0.0,8.1.x and supported in 8.0.1? Can we use 8.0.2 for the Seibel Analysis?

    1. Hello,

      Ref 8.0.0 - I think there was a bug in this release which prevented the use of the Siebel extension (and also the PeopleSoft extension), which was corrected in 8.0.1.

      I will check with R&D about 8.0.2, but I believe it is possible.

      Ref use with 8.1.x - I believe that it is not been fully tested and therefore it is currently unsupported.

    A few questions on the permissions needed on tables:

    1. Does the user id need SELECT permissions on these tables?
    2. Would the user id also need similar permissions as needed by the user running the Oracle extractor?
    3. Can the "Vanilla" extract be performed with identical permissions?
