About this task

A discovery or operational error in a CI is often propagated to all its connections down the hierarchy crowding your view. You can remove identical errors caused by the same CI by consolidating them in one object on the map. For example, if one CI causes an error in six CIs connected to it, you can show only one CI with this error on the map. The connector line shows the number of actual connections.

Merge error nodes to unify CIs with identical error messages caused by the same CI.
