Issue/Introduction

We have many routers and switches that have longer names and the ending of these names are not shown in OneClick and are truncated off.

This also causes a problem when we export the topology to PNG as you cannot tell which device is which because only the last few digits are different.

Router / Switches names not fully shown when you export in PNG, as the difference are the last characters i.e SW2 , SW3 , SW4 , if you cannot see the last characters you really do not know which is what.

Cause

Default Character Limit in OneClick is set to 95 characters.

Environment

Release : 21.2.x, 10.4.x, 

Component : Spectrum OneClick

Resolution

Copy the file $SPECROOT/tomcat/webapp/spectrum/WEB-INF/topo/config/default-iconlabel-config.xml to the $SPECROOT/custom/topo/config location and make these changes below

 

From

<max-background-width>95</max-background-width>
<min-background-width>95</min-background-width>

 

to a higher value

<max-background-width>140</max-background-width>
<min-background-width>140</min-background-width>

 

Close and open a new OneClick Client and you should see the longer names and now export should work as expected.  If you have longer names then 140 characters, then use a higher value.
