Issue/Introduction

I'm trying to change the name of one of the type enumeration values. I made a PUT call to extend the metric family and updated the value for escon (73) to <our value> (73). I am passing in the value correctly, but the tool is still saying the interface type is escon. I've sync'd the DA and updated the metric family and still no change. Is there some other API end point I need to update for the change to stay permanent? 

Environment

Release : 3.6

Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

You can't change ifType values. It is not an extendable variable.
