A customer is wanting to create dummy elements in dataminer inorder to populate a rack layout along with the monitored elements in dataminer. As this driver only creates the dummy elements in a table then this cant be used with the IDP rack layout. So the question is what rack layout is this driver designed to be used with or is it just for custom visio visuals generated for individual use cases.
That driver is used to display 'passive' devices on your rack overview, devices that are not actively monitored in DataMiner, devices where you don't have a DataMiner element for.
You create 1 (or more) element using that "Skyline Generic Rack Passive Device Generator" protocol. It has an "Equipment Table" where you can add your passive devices either manually or via CSV import. For each device you specify a name, a unit height, where it should be displayed in the rack and on which DataMiner view you want to display it (it assumes you a separate view per rack). Note that this table contains devices from multiple racks.
On the DataMiner view corresponding to your rack you can dynamically generate shapes and position them according to what you configured in that element. It'd look like below. Per rack you filter only the device for that particular rack, and you read the xpos and ypos. Optionally you could work with multiple of these elements if the table becomes too big and read the element name from a custom view property.
