DCO: Grid layout naming convention of racks

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Christian Riis on 2017-09-06


A customer is asking if it is possible to change the default grid naming of racks placed on the floor. 

Currently, the naming is based on the lower left corner, see attached image, where the rack is named A3. The customer wants the naming to be based on the lower right corner, so the rack below would be named B3.

How can we do that?

Additional comments:

It is a problem, because of the search functionality. If I search for A3, it shows up:

 

But a search on B3 gives an empty result:

Thanks!

Hi Christian,

The rack floor coordinate seems to depend on the location of it's 'reference' point (illustrated with dashed circle) - please notice the orientation of the rack in the following illustration (same rack with different orientation -> different floor coordinates):

Kind regards

Yes, agree. But the question is; can the reference point be changed?

Hi Christian,

As far as I know, there is no supported feature to change the reference point. If you wish, I can capture a feature request for you/customer, thanks.

Kind regards
