Powerbuilder PBL Extraction

This feature is visible only when files with PBL (PowerBuilder Libraries that contain source code) extension have been detected in the uploaded codebase. In order to explore the source code (SRW, SRU, SRD… files), you need to extract it first.

PBL files are detected at the project creation. They are indicated by an orange exclamation mark asking the user to click on the upper-right menu in order to launch the Extraction.

PBL Extraction

The extraction takes a few minutes depending on the number and size of the files to be extracted. Once done, the user is notified by email, the orange icon is replaced by a green one, and the project metrics are updated. A summary of the extraction is also available on the “…” menu.

The extraction can be relaunched if needed.

It is also possible to import PowerBuilder code into BluInsights with no extraction. You can upload the source code files. They usually have the following extensions (list not exhaustive):
