This section describes the APIs that enable creation and or alteration of managed objects that form the physical components of the underlying network.

displayName: This is not used to uniquely identify an object in the OTM repository. It is used only for display purposes. The actual component name is used to uniquely identify the object and is also used to do a lookup to find whether the object exists or not.

Optional parameter: When specifying one or more optional parameters, you must specify preceding optional parameters with respective correct data types.

Enum type parameter: All enum type parameters must be passed as Strings (of valid enum value) for Java and ASL implementation. For C and C++ implementation, the exact enum type value should be passed.
