Enhancement Request - Increase Length of Equipment Spec Window's Acronym Field
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 25, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution - Version 6.2.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Enhance the application by increasing the length of the Equipment Spec (w_equipspec_maint) window's "Acronym" field (ASAP.EQUIPMENT_SPEC.EQUIPMENT_ACRONYM) from VARCHAR2(10) to VARCHAR2(25).
Because of its 10 character limitation, users are unable to determine the full card name/capability when adding or validating equipment. This problem was first encountered during an effort to add Manufacturer Part Numbers and CLEI codes into MetaSolv Solution in order to validate against the network. Prior to this, users were taking advantage of the Part Number field to store the full card name/capability. The vendor Part Number field does not provide a description or a name of the card. Increasing the Acronym field's character length from 10 to 25 would allow the entry of the full name/capability of the card.
