As a result, CAST has developed the Update CAST Knowledge Base Tool to help you modify the CAST Analysis Service as needed.



As of the CAST AIP version 8.3.0, a new feature called Transaction Graph Adjustment allows end-users to make changes to links used for building Transaction graphs which are used for the majority of Function Point computations. As of CAST AIP 8.3.1, this same feature also applies to links retrieved for building graphs used for computing the Risk Index of Transactions.

Indeed the so called "adjusted" links are only taken into account for computing the former Transaction and Risk Index graphs, but contrary to the Update CAST Knowledge Base Tool, genuine links are left unchanged in the Analysis Service schema.

Users who intend to use the Update CAST Knowledge Base Tool for changing links which are part of Transaction and/or Risk Index graphs should, for these specific links, consider using the Transaction Graph Adjustment feature instead.
