How to change a device's Interface Name Suffix
By default, Spectrum will name interfaces using the device's model_name and append the ifName of the interface.
In some instances, a user may prefer to have the ifIndex, ifDescr, or ifAlias appended to the name
instead of ifName.
This is controlled by the 'Interface Name Primary Suffix' attribute on the device.
Release : 10.3.x, 10.4.x

When using the Attribute Editor and enabling 'Set As Default' be mindful of how this will affect your environment. When
this is enabled the Attribute Editor will update the Attribute being modified on the Model Type in the catalog. In the example
above the device is of Model Type Host_Device. This means that the attribute will be modified on the Host_Device model
in the catalog. Many attributes inherit their values from the model type, if you change the Model Type this will also roll
down to other existing models of that type that are inheriting the value and not just the model selected.
If you were to modify the attribute value directly on deviceB, then use the Attribute Editor on deviceB and use 'Set as Default'
deviceB would not update as it is no longer inheriting the value unless it too was selected along with deviceA when the
Attribute Editor was launched.
