Bandwidth assignment for TDM circuits should allow users to override Included Connection Types
When making a Bandwidth assignment to TDM circuits to create a Circuit Emulation, the Connection Hierarchy Search window that pops up has multiple “Included” circuit types checked in,
from the User's Preferences in Inv Mgmt - Conn Hierarchy (Bandwidth, Facility, Special, Trunk), but the user is not allowed to uncheck any of these types at the time of search.
As a result, the search may return too many circuits of incorrect type (i.e. not Bandwidth), which can make it difficult to select the circuit you want.
Window: Connection Hierarchy for Connection Design
a. Change the default behavior to only Include Bandwidth types; and/or
b. Allow Users to override the default choices and select the desired circuit type (s), in the same way MSS does when assigning a Facility circuit.
1. Open a TDM circuit in Connection Design in the CLR/DLR page
2. Click on Bandwidth choice under Actions menu
» The Connection Hierarchy Search window displays the ' Include ' choices from the User's Preferences in Inv Mgmt - Connection Hierarchy » Query Defaults
BW (Bandwidth) choice is added to the window if user has not checked it in his/her preferences.
The picture below provides a visual cue to the request:
• Not being able to uncheck items that should not be there, brings incorrect circuit types, making it difficult to select the proper one.
• Making changes in the Preferences is not the best choice as Conn Hierarchy is regularly used by the engineers besides provisioning.
The same behavior can be found in 6.0.15 , 6.0.16 , 6.2.0 & 6.2.1 releases.
