Get Interfaces / Topology From A Router In R80.10?

I've encountered something odd in R80.10 that seems different from R77.30 functionality. Not sure if this is a bug, or just a change in process that I was unaware of.


In R77.30 management, we would create "Gateway" objects for Cisco Routers. This would allow us to supply SNMP information to pull back the router's topology. This feature was important as it allowed us to accept TACACS from multiple interfaces on the router without having to create individual objects for each interface.


This is an object that was upgraded from R77.30 to R80.10... These objects got moved to the Interoperable Devices category of nodes. However, when you edit the object, it shows as a Gateway Node. Regardless, when you look at the properties, there is a sub-menu for "Other". This is where you can supply the SNMP community strings.


When I try to create a new Interoperable Device, there is no "Other" menu to supply SNMP credentials. There is"Get" button on the Topology menu, but it cannot retrieve the topology without the SNMP community strings. 


If anyone has any insights on this, please let me know!
