You can analyze a network topology (sometimes called tracing) within predefined workflows or with the .
Use the in the pane to specify a stop condition. You can use a predefined stop condition, or you can define a new one.
The Autodesk Infrastructure Map Server Administrator defines tracings and tracing conditions. You can see them if you defined a logical (network) topology.
Some data models (for example, in the Gas, Water, Wastewater, and Electric modules) have predefined tracings.
To analyze a network topology
- In the . , click
- In , expand the item.
- Right-click a topology and click .
If your Administrator defined any other tracings, they also appear on this shortcut menu. If a tracing uses a stop condition, when you select it the is displayed. You can often tell which tracings use stop conditions by their names.
- In the dialog box, in the list, select a template.
Tracing templates are predefined tracing models (propagation) that are defined in the data model administrator.
- Follow the on-screen instructions in the section.
Workflows vary, depending on the tracing template.
The administrator defines network tracing templates in the data model administrator.
- If you are tracing an attributive network topology, specify the start and end features in the feature class form.
- Click to specify a start node where the tracing begins.
- Click to specify an end node for the shortest path analysis.
- When you finish, click .
The resulting features are highlighted in the map and listed in the dialog box.
- Expand the items, select a feature, and do any of the following:
To create a stop condition
- In the pane, under , click to add a stop condition.
- Click . Enter a name.
If you do not enter a name, the stop condition is used for the current process but is not stored for later use.
- In the dialog box, select a feature class.
- Select an attribute in that feature class.
- Enter a value for the attribute. Note that there is no blank space between the value and the operator.
If the network trace finds a feature of the selected feature class with the specified attribute, the network trace stops at that feature.
- Click to save the stop condition.
In the dialog box, the list displays only the stop conditions that are not assigned to any tracing template.
To edit a stop condition in the Stop Condition Editor
Note that the Stop Condition Editor list box displays only the stop conditions that are not assigned to any tracing template.
- You can only edit the stop conditions that you have created while executing a workflow.
- You cannot edit stop conditions that other users have created while executing a workflow.
- You cannot edit stop conditions that have been created using Infrastructure Administrator, or that have been created by the system.
