The Run Dynamic Link Manager (DLM) is a sub task that is optional.  It will always be run, but would not have any specific results unless rules have been added to the analysis to be processed after the analysis is  run. 

A separate log will be generated for the action of the Run Dynamic Link Manager. 

Please see the below documentation and example screenshots for more information on this step and an example of where it is located in the CAST Management Studio.

 8.0.X Documentation: CMS - Dynamic Link Manager filter rules

Example screenshot showing the Run Dynamic Link Manger being executed is shown below.

 

Example screenshot showing the Run Dynamic Link Manager being configured is shown below.
