Applicable in CAST Version

.NET Analyzer

In .NET analyzer, a C# class library is consisdered as external object when the C# project of this libraru has not been analyzed in the same KB as the C# project which is refering to it.

For example, having project commons.csproj which uses the following reference to ARM-Commons.csproj


If in a knowledge base only project commons.csproj is analyzed then ARM-Commons will be considered as external reference. But if ARM-Commons.csproj is also analyzed in the same Knowledge Base, then ARM-Commons will be considered as internal reference.

Use the query of the following page SQL Queries - CAST Knowledge Base - Queries on objects - How to list External Objects to list the external dependencies and check into the list if the project your are looking for is displayed.
