Introduction

When an analysis is run, the authenticity of some links that have been identified between objects cannot be absolutely determined by CAST AIP - these links are known as "dynamic links". Often these "unverified links" systematically occur in every analysis or have no meaning for the specific technology you are working with. To counter this, filter rules (DLM.XML files) can be configured to either validate (i.e. retain) or ignore (delete) these recurring dynamic links automatically when an analysis is run.

This option enables you to add Dynamic Links Rules (DLM.XML files) at a global level and make it available for all Applications. What does this mean?

  • You can find more detailed information about how to create Dynamic Links Rules files (DLM.XML files) Application - Config - Dynamic Links Rules.
  • AIP Console does NOT check the uploaded DLM.XML file for consistency or correctness.

Viewing the contents of an uploaded DLM.XML file

Use the  icon to view the contents of  DLM.XML file:

Removing an uploaded DLM.XML file

Use the  icon to delete a DLM.XML file at global level. This will NOT delete the corresponding file from your AIP Nodes.

Editing an existing DLM.XML file

If you need to edit a DLM.XML file that you have already uploaded, you should NEVER edit the file in <installation>\AipConsole\data\upload\dlm, instead you should:
