Dependency field removal and prevent auto update

Dependency field removal and prevent auto update

The dependency field of the devices can be entered manually or it can update itself when a layer 2 map is created.
If you remove the dependency manually, it will be populated again since by default the layer 2 map will have a auto-discovery interval.

To stop the auto update/population of dependency field -
Connect to the DB -

Execute -
update layer2configuration set autodependency='false';


This will prevent the auto-updation of the dependency field.
