We noticed that the Router and Switch names are not fully shown in OneClick

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.


Default Character Limit in OneClick is set to 95 characters.


Release : 21.2.x, 10.4.x, 

Component : Spectrum OneClick


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





to a higher value



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.
