Applies To: SQL Server 2016
Use the Impact Analysis dialog box in SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) and SQL Server Management Studio to identify and optionally process dependent objects that are affected if the objects listed in the Process dialog box are processed. You can display the Impact Analysis dialog box by clicking Impact Analysis from the Process dialog box.
Displays a list of dependent objects in a grid. The grid contains the following columns:
Displays the name of the dependent object that may need to be processed. The icon to the left of the name indicates the object type.
Displays the type of dependent object that may need to be processed.
Displays the effect that processing the objects in the Process dialog box has on the dependent object. The following table lists the possible effects of processing and notes whether each one results in a warning or an error.
|Object will be cleared (unprocessed)||Warning|
|Object would be invalid||Error|
|Aggregation would be dropped||Warning|
|Flexible aggregation would be dropped||Warning|
|Indexes will be dropped||Warning|
|Non-child object will be processed||Warning|
Select the dependent objects that you want to process with the processing operation. Dependent objects that are not selected must be processed after the processing operation is finished. Otherwise, they cannot be used.
