About the Requests Page for the Network Service Designer
To access this page, click Home> Requests.
Use the Requests page to create and manage requests for new network services. You must create a request before you can design a network service.
A request contains information about the required service, such as:
The customer’s name.
The requested functions in the network service. For example, NAT, UTM, and firewall.
The performance goals for the service.
As soon as you start to design the network service, the request becomes a design, which you track on the Designs page. See About the Designs Page for the Network Service Designer.
