In XMC in the 'Configure Device' widget, there is an option for the 'Topology Layer'.
What does this field do ??? Is it some where groupable or searchable ??
It would be nice if we could declare our device a "Layer 3" and do the mapping by e.g routing protocols.

Greetings

You can assign the value and you can use this value in scripts/workflows/ZTP process

If you could provide an example, that would be nice.

Here is example:


When you discover the device you can assign topology.




In Actions you can define aditional scripts what will be executed based on the topology.

Example of graphQL query you can use in your script/workflow to understand the configured topology:
query{
network {
device(ip:"192.168.130.36") {
deviceData {
topologyRole
}
}
}
}


response:
{
"data": {
"network": {
"device": {
"deviceData": {
"topologyRole": "11"
}
}
}
}
}
