|Summary||1827: Feature request: Label generation from cable maps|
|Description||A feature I would like to see would be to output a CSV from cable maps so that they can be imported into popular label printer software from Panduit, Brother, Dymo, whoever. |
An example would be a 4 column CSV with source hostname, local port, remote port, destination hostname
Doing this would allow me to rack and map cables in Racktables prior to physical installation of hardware. It would expand Racktables use as an architectural tool - not simply a documentation tool.

I have created a plugin that could respond to your needs.
Since I am working with version 0.21.1 which has a different plugin management, I have back-ported my plugin to be compatible with version 0.20.14, the current stable release (at the moment I no longer have a 0.20.14 environment for a complete test ... hope it works!)
Once installed (i.e. put the attached file in the 'plugins' directory of your installation, and set attributes and ownership as required), you should find a 'Cable labels' tab when displaying object information.
Feel free to use or modify it as needed.
