As far as I am aware there can be no loose number of cavities; they must be specified in Capital Library. However, seeing as the part is dummy (not on BOM) then I would recommend giving it a big number of cavities as it doesn't really matter for a dummy part, and then route as many wires as you like to the connector.
Would that solve your problem?
Would a dummy splice work as they don't have a set number of cavities? Or would this cause other problems?
If a 100 cavity dummy connector was created would that mean a 100 cavity table would appear in the harness? This was the reason I asked about using a dummy splice.
Yes, the large cavity table is my main problem.
And I want to add a symbol saying `NO CONNECTOR'.
Why not a connector with a single cavity, since it doesn't matter. The tables will show a row for each wire. Call the cavity "Unterminated".
The scenario I had in mind was that each wire end was special in the sense that a terminal might go with it, or maybe a seal or an additional cavity component. All of which are selected through CCM and hence the need for a connector rather than a splice.
If that's not the case, and no need is there for CCM, then a single-cavity connector will do as Nuri says, or a splice even.
Note that the cavity chart's visibility can be controlled with the default query "Included on BOM" so if that's not true (dummy connector) the chart does not show!
Let me know if this solves the problem.
