The Interdependency Browser shows a selected database object and its relationships to other database objects. A database object is displayed as a rectangle containing the name of the object and the type of the object. An icon is included to represent the object's type.

A relationship between objects is shown by a connecting line from one object to another. There are two types of connecting lines:
Line Type Description
Solid Indicates that the object on the arrowhead end of the line is contained by the other object (such as a database containing a table).
Dashed Indicates that the object references the other object (such as a view referencing a table).

The selected object initially appears with a gray background and shows the objects that reference the selected object as well as the objects that it references.

By default, the diagram does not show columns and parameters.

You can show or remove related objects by using the context menu associated with the object whose diagram element is currently selected. The current selection is indicated by a bold line outlining the object's rectangle or the line indicating a relationship between two objects.

The actions that appear in the Interdependency Browser context menus are described in Interdependency Browser Actions.

Actions that can add or remove objects from the diagram have a check mark next to the action name to indicate that objects of that type appear in the diagram. Choosing a selected action removes all of the selected object's references to objects of the action's type. Selecting a cleared action adds the selected object's references to the objects of the action's type (if any).

If dependent objects are not returned for the browser, there may be Meta Data Services synchronization issues that need to be considered. Refer to the Meta Data Services Synchronization Issues page to help resolve these issues.
