Unable to view/select entities in the NCM configuration change template.


  • NCM, all versions


The issue is likely caused by an incomplete inventory job.


Complete an inventory job on these nodes in NCM to be able to see the entities in the configuration change report.

To schedule an NCM inventory job, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Orion Web Console, click My Dashboards > Configs > Jobs.
  2. Create a new job with the job type "Update inventory".
    Note: Ensure that this job is set to run on the node(s) in question. Then, make sure that the job options include the Interfaces check box.
  3. Save this job, and enable it.
  4. Run this job.
You can verify by going back to the config change template.
The entities should be listed now for all the interfaces of the nodes inventoried.
