Save, Open, and Compare Dependency Analysis Results

In a project, you can save the results of a dependency analysis. You can view the saved results later, without having to repeat the analysis. You can also save results separately in named files and reload them.

Save, open, and compare dependency analysis results from the File section of the Dependency Analysis tab.

  • To save your results as a .graphml file, click Save As and choose a file name and location.

  • To open saved dependency analysis results, click Open.

  • To compare results with previously saved results, click Compare to Saved. Select a .graphml file. Inspect the differences in the comparison report.

You can save reports that include more detailed results by using model dependency analysis. For more information about choosing model or project dependency analysis, see What Is Dependency Analysis?.
