Priority Child Circuit NOT Displayed When Associated Under Non-Priority Parent Circuit (Doc ID 2846558.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 07, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution - Version 6.3.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a non-priority parent circuit having a child circuit associated with a priority code is retrieved and viewed in the Connection Hierarchy window (w_channelhier_maint), the entire relationship is filtered out using the "View > Only Priority Circuits" option. The connections are no longer displayed. According to the Release 6.3.1 "What's New" document (mss_6_3_1_whats_new.pdf) for enhancements in Patch 31655196 (, they should. See Additional Information section below for relevant text parsed from the document.

Additional Information

Only Display Priority Circuits within Connection Hierarchy

You may now more quickly identify circuits having an associated Circuit Priority Code
within Connection Hierarchy. Previously, while priority circuits were easily identified by
their respective images representing their priority level, along with their parent
hierarchy’s priority flag, they were surrounded by all non-priority circuits within the
same hierarchy. Now, you may quickly configure Connection Hierarchy to only display
priority circuits, thus filtering out all other circuits that do not have an associated
priority code. To do this, right-click and select the new View > Only Priority Circuits
menu option. You can return the hierarchy to normal by selecting the menu option
again to disable it.

When enabled, this new menu will refresh the view to only display circuits having an
associated priority code, and filter out all other circuits, including the channels each
non-priority circuit is assigned to.


Non-priority parent circuits containing one or more priority circuits within their
child hierarchy will continue to display within the hierarchy, and are identified
by the circuit priority flag. These non-priority circuits are kept within the
hierarchy so that you may navigate down to their priority children.

Recreation Steps

1. Inventory Management.

2. Connection Hierarchy.

3. Search for and expand a non-priority parent circuit having a priority child circuit.

    * Note circuits with priority are easily identified by their respective icon images representing their priority level along with a red priority flag icon image representing a priority circuit exists within the connection hierarchy relationship. 

4. Right-click in the empty white space and select "View > Only Priority Circuits" from the pop-up menu.

    * Note the circuit is NOT displayed after the filter was applied to the Connection Hierarchy window.
