The external keyword can be used in IP Manager dynamic model files.The external keyword indicates whether the literal text specified as the initial value of a string attribute will be externalized. The external keyword implies both static and readonly. When including the external keyword in a declaration, do not include the static and readonly keywords.

The external keyword is not available in Service Assurance Manager dynamic model files.

After copying over dynamic model files from the IP Manager to the Service Assurance Manager, you must remove any instances of the external keyword before compiling.
