Goal

How does the Repredict to Here functionality work?

You can manually Repredict Upstream a one call PSO on a xfm in the OPAL model to the next upstream device. (e.g. T22486-->F2005) This appears to be the case for both groupable (All Power Out) and non-groupable clues (All power Out + Extreme/Life).


However, if you start a new scenario of a one call PSO on xfm T22486 and go further up the model to the first switch that has the 'Repredict to Here' functionality (F2005), the behavior is not consistent.

-For a PSO on the xfm with a groupable clue only, the PSO is manually re-predicted to S4355 on selecting 'Repredict to here'.
-However, in the scenario where the PSO has a non-groupable clue, the Repredict to Here gives a dialog saying 'No job found'. If you go back down to the xfm and manually repredicts upstream first (creating a PDO on F2005), then the Repredict to Here on S4355 manually repredicts the PDO from F2005 to S4355.

You would have expected that since the behavior for Repredict Upstream is consistent for both groupable and non-groubable clues, you would have expected consistent behavior from Repredict to Here.

Steps
1. In Web Call Entry enter a call for a customer on T22486.  Select Power: All Power Out and Priority: Extreme/Life
2. Login to Web Workspace and subscribe, target to F2005.
3. Open the Control Tool for F2005, select Repredict... > Repredict to Here. A dialog is displayed saying "No Probable Outage: No job found for device [F2005]"
4. Open the Control Tool for T22486, select Repredict... > Repredict Upstream. Navigate back to the viewer and note that the call has been repredicted upstream.
