The Quick Add Business Group Feature provides a user-friendly and time-saving method of creating a new BG (Business Group) by combining all fields required for creating a BG in one dialog.
The subscriber can configure the basic BG setup including all infrastructure settings such as Office Code and DNs (Directory Numbers), PNP (Private Numbering Plan), BG Feature Profile and intra-BG routing.
When creating a BG via the Quick Add Business Group Feature, a Feature Profile with all needed services is created automatically. The default name for the Feature Profile is derived from the BG name. The name pattern is <"FP_" + BG name>.
During the creation of a BG the following entities are also created:
the Office Code + DNs
The PNP is named <"NP_" + BG name> and assigned to this BG automatically.
System Specific Information
The default BG status is "active". This information is not displayed on the screen.
The system may reject the creation of the BG (e.g. in case of insufficient resources, BG name already used, etc.). In such cases a corresponding error message is launched. None of the already created objects (like Office Code, PNP, etc.) are rolled back – they remain existing!
The results of the Quick Add BG action are displayed in a dialog which shows a summary of the BG data entered and of all the actions performed by the application while executing the Quick Add BG operation.
The results summary contains the BG name, Office Code, Subscriber number range, Default Feature Profile, Office Code already exists, creation of NP (Numbering Plan), creation of device group.
