Terminals represent ports, entries, or exit locations on a single point feature. Terminals are also used to establish a path or paths within a device. These paths are then used to control which terminals a network commodity enters through, how it travels through a device, and which terminal or terminals to exit through.
When a feature is created with an asset type that has a terminal configuration with valid paths assigned, the feature is automatically assigned the default path established for the terminal configuration. The path assigned to a device can be modified to be any one of the valid paths identified for the terminal configuration.
Modify the terminal path or paths set for a single device feature in the Modify Terminal Paths pane. This pane presents a list of the valid paths for the terminal configuration assigned to the asset type of the feature you select. Specifying a path from the list changes the terminal path or paths for that single feature.
Follow these steps to modify the terminal path for a feature:
- On the ribbon, under Utility Network, click Data.
- In the Network Topology group, click Terminal Paths.
- In the Modify Terminal Paths pane, ensure the Select a device feature tool is active.
- In the map, click a feature from the Device class with terminals.
Only features with three or four terminals are added to the pane.
- In the pane, from the Paths drop-down menu, choose a valid path for the feature.
- Click Apply.
The terminal path is updated.
