Input Utility Network
The utility network that contains the domain network where the tier will be added.
|Utility Network; Utility Network Layer|
The domain network where the tier will be created.
The name of the new tier. The name must be unique in the entire utility network.
The rank of the tier being added. The highest rank is the number 1.
Specifies the topology type for the new tier. Subnetworks with radial and mesh topology types both support one or more subnetwork controllers. This parameter is disabled on the tool dialog box if the input domain network was created with a hierarchical tier definition and the topology type defaults to mesh. If the domain network was created with a partitioned tier definition, this parameter will have all topology types available in the drop-down list.
For tracing or subnetwork management, this parameter does not currently provide a difference in behavior. The functionality of this parameter is under development and will be applicable in a future release.
Tier Group Name
The existing tier group to which the new tier will be added. This parameter is required for domain networks with a hierarchical tier definition.
Subnetwork Field Name
The name of the field where the subnetwork names for this tier will be stored. This is a system-maintained field that will be created the first time a tier is added to a tier group and reused for any additional tiers. For example, you have two tier groups: Distribution and Transmission. When you add a tier named system to the Distribution group and specify the subnetwork field name to be systemsubnet, the field is created. Next, you add a second tier named system to the Transmission group. This parameter will detect that the systemsubnet field should be used as the subnetwork field name. This parameter is required for hierarchical tier types.
