Issue:

We have a Spectrum integrated with VNA and separately VNA is integrated with Nuage.

Both of these are documented integrations, using the supported versions and work correctly, separately i.e. VNA in spectrum and the discovery of Nuage by VNA are correct, but in Spectrum, there are some Nuage objects, that have no mappings. These models end up in Lost+Found. 

With the VNA Spectrum integration in debug mode, I see that ENTERPRISE and DOMAIN objects have "Unsupported model type identified":

Environment:
CA Spectrum integrated with VNA and VNA integrated with Nuage
Cause:

Even though Spectrum does integrate with VNA and VNA does integrate with Nuage, Spectrum does not integrate directly with Nuage.

This is not mentioned in the documentation, as we only document what we do support and not what we don't support.  Nuage is not listed in the Spectrum documentation as a supported integration, as it has not been tested and is not supported.

Resolution:

None.
