Mapping Analysis of InfoObjects in Network View

An additional feature of the System Scout is the tracing of the mapping of a selected InfoObject from the InfoProvider (or Query) down to the DataSource(s). For each Transformation in the Data Flow, it will be checked how the mapping is set for the selected InfoObject. The results are displayed in the nodes of the Transformations in the Data Flow. The analysis can be started from the Data Flow view by mouse click on the InfoObject icon:

Mapping Analysis in the toolbar of the Data Flow

Before the analysis starts a popup window appears which informs the user that the mapping of all InfoObjects of the selected InfoProvider will be analyzed. The user needs to confirm that he wants to continue with the analysis. In case InfoProviders with many dimensions and key figures, the analysis might take while:
