Unable to view details for connections in Connection Design > Schematic Design when multiple connections are assigned (Doc ID 2018457.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 22, 2017

Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution - Version 6.2.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

MetaSolv Solution version 6.2.1.804

Actual Behavior 

The graphical view in Connection Design > Schematic Design does not show the connection details for individual connections for a Virtual Connection that is assigned to multiple connections between the same pair of elements. Only the 1st connection's details are displayed as the others are hidden behind it. There is no way to see all of the circuit IDs that are assigned so a user must place the mouse cursor pointer on an individual connection and right-click > 'Properties' to open its Connection Design to see the information. Business requirements where assigning up to four different connections between the components exist for redundancy and the difficulty of isolating a single connection increases as connections are added.


Expected Behavior

There needs to be a way to easily determine which connections are assigned from the graphical view of the Connection Design > Schematic Design.


Recreation Steps

1. Create a Virtual Connection between components that have multiple connections available for assignment.

   Connection Design - /XX--/TEST/ /XXXX/ , Issue 1 (Order: 12345) > Schematic
   Design example showing two elements (End User Location and Router).

     [EUL]              [Router]
   TEST LOC        XXX - (CLLI)


2. Right-click on the End User Location and select 'Add Hard Connection'

* NOTE: Two connections must be available for assignment to observe the behavior


3. Select the 1st connection to add it to the design.

* NOTE: A single dashed line representing the connection between the two elements displays along with the circuit ID information in the middle.


   Connection Design - /XX--/TEST/ /XXXX/ , Issue 1 (Order: 12345) > Schematic
   Design example showing two elements and the connection between them.

      [EUL]------- ConnSpec -------[Router]
   TEST LOC         ConnID         XXX - (CLLI)


4. Right-click on the End User Location again to add another connection,

5. Select the 2nd connection to add it to the design.

* NOTE: Two single dashed lines representing the two connections between the two elements displays, but only the circuit ID information label for the 1st connection is visible.
