Creating dependencies

Dependencies are references between one operation and another, or between an operation and an infrastructure component. You can create dependencies within the same service component or extend them to include other elements as well. Outgoing dependencies are displayed in lavender, and incoming dependencies are displayed in green. Follow these steps to create dependencies between items in the logical view:


  1. Click the Dependency icon in the main HCL OneTest™ API toolbar.

    The selection cursor turns into a cross hair.

  2. Click the operation from which you are creating the dependency.

    A line forms from the selected operation and follows the corsair cursor.

  3. Click the operation or infrastructure component upon which the operation depends.
