Step by Step Scenario
Below is the step-by-step scenario leading to the problem:
- Package the source code and deliver
- Accept the delivery and set it as current version
- Run the analysis
Impact of the Problem on the analysis or the dashboard
The impact of the problem on the analysis or the dashboard is: The analysis will crash in between and we would not have the expected result on the dashboard.
To fix the problem, proceed as follows:
- Open the analysis log, refer the page CAST Management Studio - Information - How to find logs to find the log location.
- Go to the error message and see the line above for the copybook file, remove from deploy folder the copybook referred just before the error message in the analysis log.
- Run the anlaysis.
Impact of the solution
Impact of the solution on the analysis or the dashboard is: On removing the copybook file the object of that file will go missing and will have minimal impact as it is just a single file.
