Adding and Configuring Sites by Importing a JSON File


You can add and configure one or more sites in CSO by uploading a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) file that contains the parameters for the sites. Because adding and configuring a site are two separate steps in CSO Release 4.1.0, you must first import the JSON file for adding the sites and then import the JSON file for configuring the sites.

Before you begin, ensure that the JSON file contains all the parameters required for each site that you want to add or configure.


We recommend that you create the JSON file by referring to the sample JSON file provided by CSO. Refer to Step 3 of the procedure for downloading and modifying the sample JSON file.

To add and configure multiple sites by importing JSON files to CSO:

  1. Click Sites > Site Management.

    The Sites page appears.

  2. Click Add and select Import Sites.

    The Import Sites page appears.

  3. (Optional) Download a sample JSON file by clicking the Download Sample JSON link. Edit the parameters based on your requirements and save the file.
  4. Click Browse and navigate to the directory that contains the JSON file.
  5. Select the file and click Open.
  6. Click Import.

    A message is displayed indicating that the file is imported to CSO. After the file is imported to CSO, you are returned to the Sites page, where you can view the sites that CSO added based on the imported JSON file. The status of the newly added sites is CREATED.

  7. (Optional) If you also want to configure the newly added sites, repeat the steps starting from step 2 and import the JSON file you saved for configuring the sites in step 4.

    After the JSON file is imported successfully, you are returned to the Sites page. On the Sites page, you can view that the status of the newly configured sites is set to CONFIGURED:

    • If you enabled automatic activation for the sites, CSO activates and provisions the sites and sets the status of the sites to PROVISIONED.

    • If you did not enable automatic activation, CSO sets the status of the sites to CONFIGURED. You must manually activate the sites after which CSO provisions them. See Activating a CPE Device or Activating Dual CPE Devices (Device Redundancy).

After the sites are activated and provisioned, you can install certificates and create policies for the sites. See Installing and Uninstalling Certificates, Creating Firewall Policies, , Creating NAT Policies, Creating SD-WAN Policy Intents,
