Adding On-Demand Mesh Tunnels
An OpCo administrator or the Tenant administrator can create a mesh tunnel between a source site and destination site by using the CSO GUI in Customer Portal.
To create a mesh tunnel between the source site and a destination site:
- Select Resources > Site Management.
The Sites page appears.
- Click the site to which you want to add mesh tunnels.
The Site Name page appears.
- On the WAN > Overlay tab, click +.
The Add Dynamic Mesh Tunnel page appears.
- Complete the configuration according to the guidelines Table 1.
- Click Ok to save the changes. If you want to
discard the changes, click Cancel instead.
A tunnel is created between the source site and a destination site.

Add Tunnel Threshold
Displays the name of the source site.
Select the destination site from the list.
Displays the threshold value (sessions closed) below which a tunnel is deleted between two sites.
Note: Sites with SD-WAN Essentials service do not support creation or deletion of dynamic mesh tunnels based on a user-defined threshold for the number of sessions closed between two branch sites. However, an OpCo administrator or a tenant administrator can create a static tunnel between a source site and destination site.
By default, this toggle button is disabled. That is, even if the threshold value (sessions closed) is met, CSO does not delete mesh tunnels. You have to manually delete the mesh tunnel that you created.
Displays the number of sessions closed for 15 minutes.
