Network Switch pattern: Wireless controllers- WAP-are not getting discovered when missing the manufacturer field in the device - entPhysicalMfgName.


Description

Wireless controllers are not getting discovered when missing the manufacturer field in the device -  entPhysicalMfgName.
Pattern Pre/Post Scripts in "Discovery and Service Mapping Patterns" WAPs scoped app which is referencing "script include" accessible only in "Global".
As a result, the corresponding pattern using this script will fail during Discovery.
