    "Entity not found" error  /  "Where Used" capabilitiy

    The logs shows that the Thingworx runtime is not finding an entity.  This is an entity that I deleted earlier and is no longer in use.   How do I make this message go away ?  I tried to search it using SQUEAL and REST API did not find it.  Will a future Thingworx version provide a "Where Used" capability (references and dependencies) for not just entities but also other elements such as services, properties, styles, states, etc.

        Hi Vish, what is the full message in the log and does it show what Mashup or Service/Subscription is trying to use it?

         

        Most likely a Mashup or Service/Subscription is referring to that Entity which now no longer exists and is causing the error to appear in the log.

          For many of the current entity types there is a "View dependencies" link in the IDE that will show incoming and outgoing dependencies.  If a thing has already been deleted you can't start the search from it but you may have a good idea of other things that may reference it and be able to check these dependencies in reverse. Otherwise maybe you could check them on a local / backup server before that thing was deleted.
