Connect objects on maps manually

You can represent network links in your map by drawing lines between map objects. If a connected object is down, any connected links change color to red.

  1. Make sure the Home ribbon is selected.
  2. Click Straight () or Curved Line () in the Lines group, as appropriate.
  3. Click an object with the line drawing tool to begin drawing the link
  4. Click and drag as needed to set optional anchor points along the link path.
  5. Click a second object to finish drawing the link.
  6. If you want the links connecting your mapped objects to communicate the status of connected interfaces:
    1. Right-click a link, and select Properties.
    2. Select Status in the left pane of the Link Properties page.
    3. Drag the appropriate interface objects from the left pane of the Network Atlas window to the link status assignment areas.
