Allow devices to be dependent on one another. If a router goes down, the switch behind it will most likely go down or have an error as well.
Agree - this has taken way too long to get into the product officially. (It is in the works, but as Mike said, is at least 6 months away. We're working on improving our processes and efficiencies, too...)
In the interim, these two datasources available from the registry with these locators can achieve dependencies on a device level. Feedback appreciated!
SDT_Dependent_Devices: locator 24KKNG
SDT_Assign_Primary_For_Dependencies: locator NFTHXG
