Viewing Object Dependencies

The Objects Dependencies tree, introduced in dbForge Studio for SQL Server, offers a fast a simple way to view and navigate trough database object dependencies, that belong to each database object.

Each of available database objects within Database Explorer has the Depends On and Used By collections.

Dependencies Tree

The Depends On collection includes database objects that must be present for the object to function properly.

The Used By collection includes database objects that depend upon the selected object.

In its turn, you can expand any object within Used By or Depends On to analyze its own dependencies.

Dependencies within other dependencies

Right-click any database element to learn more abut it, find it in Database Explorer etc. (the list of available options depends on the object type).
