Group is the association of one or more logical numbers with one or more applications. The group is referenced in two distinct stages, which are:
To register a group, please follow this procedure:
It's possible to add parameters to a group. For example, the group AREA 51 has several logical numbers and sales applications. This group then has a parameter called SPECIAL_TICKET, with the value 1. Thus, all the devices belonging to this group inherit this parameter.
The logic of the sales application makes a validation on the parameter SPECIAL_TICKET, and since the value is 1, the application prints a special ticket, with additional company information for purposes of disclosure.
After long analysis by the strategic team, they came to the conclusion that the cost of printing this special, more detailed ticket, is not worth it. Analysts then decided to change the parameter SPECIAL_TICKET value from 1 to 0. Ready! Now all devices belonging to the group AREA 51 will no longer print the special tickets.
In order of preference, the parameter of a logical number overlaps the parameter of a group.
