Assign Configuration Templates to Device Templates

In Administration Portal, users with the SP (Service Provider) Administrator role (on-premises installation only) or OpCo (Operating Company) Administrator role can assign a configuration template to one or more device templates. Associating a configuration template with a device template enables you to deploy additional configuration on the device during ZTP and after the device is activated.

Note In CSO releases before Release 5.1.0, configuration templates are called stage-2 configuration templates.

Procedure

To assign a configuration template to one or more device templates:

  1. Select Resources > Templates > Configuration Templates.

    The Configuration Templates page appears.

  2. Select the configuration template that you want to assign and select More > Assign to Device Template.

    The Assign Configuration Template to Device Templates page appears.

  3. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in Table 88

    Note Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.

  4. Click OK.

    You are returned to the Configuration Templates page and a popup appears indicating whether the assignment is successful or has failed. If the assignment failed, you can retry the assignment or contact Juniper Networks support.

    If the assignment is successful, you can navigate to the Device-Name page (where the configuration parameters are displayed) and enter values for the configuration and deploy the configuration on the device.

Template

Displays the name of the configuration template that you are assigning; you cannot modify this field.

Display Name

Enter the name that you want displayed on the Device-Name page.

Component Name

For NFX250 devices, select the component name to which the configuration should be deployed. The components that are currently supported are:

  • Juniper Device Manager (JDM)—JDM is a Linux container that manages software components.

  • Juniper Control Plane (JCP)—JCP is the Junos VM running on the hypervisor. Administrators can use JCP to configure the network ports of the NFX250 device. JCP is used to configure the switching and routing function on the NFX250 device.

  • Gateway Router (GWR)—vSRX as a gateway provides the same capabilities as Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateways in a virtual form factor.

Auto Deploy

Specify whether the configuration should be deployed automatically on the device during the zero touch provisioning (ZTP) process. The options are:

  • Yes—Deploy the configuration automatically on the device during ZTP.

  • No (Default)—Don’t deploy the configuration automatically on the device during ZTP.

  • Same as global settings—Use the same settings as the one configured in the device template.

Enable For

Note: This field is enabled only if you select Auto Deploy as No.

Select whether the configuration template should be enabled for:

  • All Tenants, which means that the template is available for users with SP Administrator (on-premise installation only) or OpCo Administrator roles in Administration Portal and users with tenant administrator roles in Customer Portal.

  • SP Admin, which means that the template is available only for users with the SP Administrator role (on-premise installation only).

  • OpCo Admin, which means that the template is available only for users with the OpCo Administrator role.

  • Specific Tenants, which means that the configuration template is enabled only for specific tenants, which you can specify in the Tenants field.

Tenants

This field appears only if you specified that the configuration template should be available for specific tenants.

Select one or more tenants and click the greater-than icon (>) to move the selected tenant or tenants from the Available column to the Selected column. You can use the search icon on the top right of each column to search for tenant names.

Click Next to continue.

Device Templates

 

Select Device Templates

The list of device templates to which you can assign the configuration template are displayed in a grid along with some information about the template. CSO displays only those device templates whose device family matches the device family of the configuration template.

Select one or more device templates to which you want to assign the configuration template.
