    hierarchial structure request

    rgward

      Would like to be able to display and print a hierarchial structure of the network address space.  Would like to have the structure selectable by Supernet address, Group or Custom field with their associated network properties.  Would be nice to also to have an export option to Visio to permit further editing.

          You can define and setup a hierarchical structure in IPAM today on Supernet, subnet and categories.  Is it accurate that what you would like to see if the ability to do group by based on those other attributes?  What kind of editing would you want to do with Visio?

              The IP Networks hierarchial structure is not printable in a tree format without walking through every supernet one-by-one and expanding them to show all subordinate subnets.  Nor is the Description, entirely visable.  Both Display Names and Descriptions are truncated because the columns can't be resized.  And, it is not printable in a format that can be used in presentations or documentation.

              I would like to see something like...

              IP Networks

              10.0.0.0 /8 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                  10.92.0.0 /16 <Description> <assigned Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                      10.92.0.0 /19 <Description> <assigneded Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                          10.92.0.0 /22 <Description> <assigned Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                              10.92.0.0 /24 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                              10.92.1.0 /24 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                              10.92.2.0 /24 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                              10.92.3.0 /24 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                          10.92.4.0 /24 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                          10.92.5.0 /24 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                           . . .

                       10.92.255.0 /24 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                  10.93.0.0 /16 <Description> <associated Group, list of Custom Properties & corresponding value)

                  . . .

              As you can envision this could potentially be an extremely large view or report.  However, being able to select and filter on address range (start & stop) and ability to select number of levels deep.  Also, would like to be able to do the same view/report based upon and sorted by group, and any custom property.  For example, a list of all networks assigned custom property value 'ABC' sorted by CP & network address.

              For Visio or even a chart view in the web console, would be noice to display the IP networks in an organizational type structured view something like this...

                                                       10.0.0.0 /8

                                                       <Description, ...)

              10.92.0.0 /16                   10.93.0.0 /16             10.94.0.0 /16              . . .

              <Description, ...)               <Description, ...)        <Description, ...)         . . .

              10.92.0.0 /24                   10.93.0.0 /24             10.94.0.0 /24             

              <Description, ...)               <Description, ...)        <Description, ...)

              10.92.1.0 /24                   10.93.1.0 /24             10.94.1.0 /24             

              <Description, ...)               <Description, ...)        <Description, ...)

              ....

               

              I hope I've explained it better.  Sorry for the long explanation.  I tried to keep it to a minimum to get the point across.
