Viewing a Service Configuration


The following personnel can configure network services.

  • The network service designer can configure a service in Network Service Designer.

  • The administrative user for the tenant can configure a service in Customer Portal.

Settings that the administrative user configures override any settings that the network service designer or administrator configure.

Best Practice

The network service designer configures settings for the virtual machine (VM) in which the virtualized network function (VNF) resides and the administrative user configures settings for the service, such as policies. The service designer can also configure a few example settings for the service. These example settings should be generic and not network-specific.

To configure a service:

  1. Select Configuration > Network Services > Service Name > Overview.

    The Services Overview page for the service that you selected appears.

  2. In the service chain graphic, click the first VNF.

    The Service page appears.

  3. Click each tab to review the settings.

    The Base Configure tab shows the settings for the virtual machine (VM) that contains the VNF, and the other tabs show the settings for specific functions in the VNF.

    Refer to the related topics for the specific VNF settings for details on the configuration settings.

  4. (Optional) Click the next VNF in the service chain graphic to view settings for that VNF.

  5. Click Ok.
