I can import a single rear connection between 2 patch panels but cannot see if there's a way to import multiples
The ETL Import DB network_connection table has no start port/count construct. Is there another way?

Hi Ed, port_configuration is the table that defines the network ports on equipment. You will find start_port and port_count there. Once port_configuration is done right, you can define multiple network_connections between the two patch panels with different from_port_number and to_port_number, setting is_patch_panel_rear and us_to_patch_panel_rear as true. Let us know if this works.

I already used port_configuration to create the ports, my question was around connections. I work with a row per conenction
Thanks for the response

Currently the network_connection table expects a row per connection, with no option for doing multiple connections in one row in the database. It makes sense that you would specify the number of connections, but when implementing this we did not think of this.
