Summary: This document provides technical information about the extension called "Module Definition Types" (com.castsoftware.moduledefinitiontypes).
Please see Module Definition Types - 1.0 - Release Notes for more information.
This extension categorizes all modules defined (whether manually or automatically) in Console/CAST Management Studio and gives them a value as follows:
|Per Analysis Unit||4|
This value is stored for each Application (in the Analysis schema) and the information is used by other CAST processes and tools, as listed below:
During the export/import process of Application data into CAST Imaging ≥ 2.11, this information is used to ensure that Per technology modules are never included in the export and therefore never appear in CAST Imaging. These type of modules are automatically created in Console (unless a different strategy is chosen manually) and are very often very large (i.e. contain a lot of data). Because these modules are large, they often do not provide much value during investigation.
|AIP Core||≥ 8.3.0|
The Module Definition Types extension will be installed automatically only when using Console ≥ 2.4. In any other situation you must download and install it "manually":
A new analysis/snapshot must be performed after installation to ensure the extension is executed. In addition, a new import into CAST Imaging using ≥ 2.11 must be actioned so that the categorization provided by the extension can be exploited in CAST Imaging.
