Group Nodes and Links into a Topology Group

You can group the nodes and links on a topology map to form a topology group. For more information, see About the Topology Group Tab.
To add a topology group:
  1. Click Network > Topology.

    The Topology page is displayed with the topology map at the center and the network information table at the bottom of the page.

  2. Select the required nodes or links on the topology map by holding down the Shift key and the left mouse button, and then dragging the mouse to create a rectangular selection box.

    All elements within the box are selected.

  3. Right-click and select Grouping > Group Selected Nodes/Links into Topology Group.

    The Group Selected Nodes/Links into Topology Group window appears.

  4. Enter a positive integer number in the Slice ID field.

    The slice ID can take a value between 1 and 2**53–1. If the slice ID is assigned a value greater or equal to 2**32, the slice ID and the topology group ID might not be the same. So, we recommend that you use a value lesser than 2**32 for a slice ID.

  5. Click OK.

    The topology group is added to the Topology Group tab of the network information table.
