Goal

ENHANCEMENT REQUEST
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Groom tool needs to be able to support end-point grooms - Originating and Terminating Networks / Elements.
Customer has need to perform end-point grooms using the groom tool.
As old DSLAMS are decommissioned, we need to be able to move customer circuits to the new DSLAM as a termination point.

After the groom is finished, in the VC we observe the new end point correctly connected, but the previous end point remains on the schematic design without connections.

BUSINESS IMPACT:
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
We will be doing more and more endpoint grooms as we deploy new DSLAMS and Virtual Connections.
Additionally, our network conversion project will also require more virtual grooming as we move our FTTT circuits to the network-based circuits (as per Oracle's recommendation),
instead of being stand-alone facility circuits as they are today. FTTT circuits are critical customer circuits and must be processed quickly and efficiently.
