Flexible Patch Panel Connection Report

A patch panel connection report is a graphical display of the layout of a patch panel or a series of patch panels. This topic describes the patch panel connection report generated by Fiber Manager when a flexible data model is being used.

  1. Click the Patch Panel Connection Report button and use the flag cursor to select the patch location. The Select report item window appears.
  2.  Select the item for which you want a report, and then click Select.

    A report in XML format appears in your Web browser with a format similar to example below.

    The report displays the name of any associated patch panels or device racks in the upper-right corner. Connection and circuit information are displayed for each port. When the cursor hovers over a location on the rack, the location is highlighted.

    In the example below, the 12th St. Center patch panel card contains 24 ports. According to the example, port number 2 is connected to a switch, but it is not associated with a circuit.

    NOTE: If your report looks different than the example below, refer to the Classic Patch Panel Connection Report topic.
