Take a look at uonet1-gw module 1. That gig module has descriptions on it that are not being updated in netdot. Is there a flag somewhere that enables/disables this?

Yes, the field is called overwrite_descr and belongs in the Interface table. There is a variable in the configuration file (etc/Site.conf) that controls the default value:

  1. Whether Interface descriptions should be overwritten
  2. with the values returned from SNMP (ifAlias).

The thing is that with most of our switches, the descriptions are kept in the database, and not in the switch. If we set this to true by default, the descriptions would be erased by the empty ifAlias value each time we update via SNMP.

Now, what I need to do is add a button in the Device page to allow you to set this to true or false on every interface of a given device.
