Contrail Service Orchestration (CSO) GUI Portals

 

The following sections provide a high-level overview of the CSO GUI portals:

  • Administration Portal—The Administration Portal in Contrail Service Orchestration (CSO) provides a Web-based UI that service providers (SPs) and operating companies (OpCos) can use to manage physical and virtual resources, add and manage tenants, monitor system performance, perform administrative tasks (such as manage users and roles), and so on. For more information, see Administration Portal Overview in the CSO Administration Portal User Guide available on the CSO Documentation page).

  • Customer Portal—The Customer Portal in CSO provides a Web-based UI that tenants of service providers (SPs) and operating companies (OpCos) can use to manage sites and devices, apply policies (firewall, NAT, SD-WAN, and so on), and perform administrative tasks. In Customer Portal, the objects that you manage and the actions that you perform are done in the context of a single tenant. Therefore, objects belonging to one tenant are isolated from objects belonging to other tenants. For more information, see Customer Portal Overview in the CSO Customer Portal User Guide (available on the CSO Documentation page).

  • Designer Tools—Designer Tools are a suite of GUI-based tools that enable network designers to support virtualized network functions (VNFs) and network services in CSO. Designer Tools comprise Configuration Designer, Resource Designer, and Network Services Designer. For more information, see Designing and Publishing Network Services.

    Note

    Designer Tools is available only for the CSO on-premises version and can be accessed only by users with the service provider (SP) Administrator role.
