in version 5.1.4
Discovery is a great tool!
But does not absolutely reflects OutSystems reference architecture rules...

Continues to miss some important options (or similar):
 - Disregard weak dependencies upper and cycle findings within the same domain/app (motivation examples: Menu->Screens, Emails, ...)
 - Disregard down findings (weak or hard dependencies) from vertical domain apps to horizontal domain foundation layer apps.

False positive cases promote management difficulties or lead the technical leader to wrong solutions by masking the cases.

Great tool to use from the start of your project not to end up with a spaghetti of code.
