Can i show a unreal device in topology view?

Hello everyone,,

how to display any dummy device in the topology (purely in the map) so as not to add it to the list of devices and not spend the license?

I have a local area network where about 50 user devices are used. I want to add them to the map, but so that they only appear there. Without the ability to somehow manage them and use licenses in vain.

Hello,

You can do this by using the button Add Cloud on the Network Topology's toolbar. Simply enter a name for your cloud (optionally you can link it to open up a different topology view too), and add it to the map. If you prefer a different icon, right-click it and select Modify Cloud Icon. You can also use Add Link on the toolbar to manually add a link from one of your existing devices to this "cloud" device, so that you can see the link status (based on the existing device's interface status) on the network topology.

Best regards,
Justin
