Junos Space User Interface Overview in FIPS mode
The Junos Space UI in FIPS mode is designed to look and behave in a way that most users are familiar with. The left tree structure facilitates navigation and the right pane displays information about the workspace or task selected in the left pane. Multiple users can access the UI through Web browsers concurrently. All users have access to the same current information in the same system wide database. Access to tasks and objects is controlled by permissions assigned to each user.
The Junos Space UI in FIPS mode is common to Junos Space Network Management Platform and Junos Space applications. The information displayed on the Junos Space UI changes according to the application you select. The examples shown here are from the Junos Space Platform UI. Other applications may have design variations.
When you log in to Junos Space Platform after you enable FIPS mode, the previously configured home page is displayed. The Junos Space Platform Dashboard, which is the default home page, is shown in Figure 1.

Global Search Text Box
This display contains three main parts: a task tree on the left, which is always available; a main window on the right, whose content changes as you select items from the task tree; and a banner across the top, which offers the date and time, the domain to which you are logged in, global search, and several icon buttons for frequently used actions. These parts are described in the following sections.
Junos Space Banner
The Junos Space banner, as indicated in Figure 1, displays the date and server time in the active time zone, the domain to which you are logged in, global search, and the global actions icons. This banner is always present.
If you access the Junos Space Platform UI in two tabs of the same browser with two different domains selected and access the same page in both tabs, the information displayed on the page is based on the latest domain selected. To view pages that are accessible only in the Global domain, ensure that you are in the Global domain in the most recent tab in which you are accessing the UI.
Table 1 describes the global action icons on the right side of the banner.

Enables you to access the Junos Space home page or set the Junos Space home page.
Displays the application Help. To access workspace context-sensitive Help, click the Help icon after navigating to that workspace.
Displays the My Jobs dialog box from which you can view the progress and status of your current managed jobs. You can view all your completed, in-progress, canceled, and scheduled jobs in Junos Space Platform.
Displays the Change User Settings dialog box from which you can change user preferences, such as the password.
Logs you out of the system.
The task tree on the left side of the display is always present and facilitates navigation in the Junos Space Platform UI. As shown in Figure 1, when you first log in, the Application Selector list displays Network Management Platform by default. You can drop this list down to see all the Junos Space applications available on your system.
You can collapse the task tree to the left by clicking the double left arrow buttons in its header, and reexpand it by clicking the double right arrow buttons.
Below the application name is the word Dashboard, selected by default. It indicates that what you see in the right-hand window is the dashboard for the current application—in this case, Junos Space Platform. The dashboard shows several measures of overall system health.
Below the Dashboard item in the tree is a list of the workspaces available in the current application. This list forms the top level of the task tree. If you select a different application from the Applications list, you see the workspace list change. This topic describes the workspaces for Junos Space Platform; for the workspaces in other applications, see the documentation for those applications.
The workspaces in the Junos Space Platform are described at a high level in Table 2.
Table 2: Workspace Names
Manage devices, including adding, discovering, importing, and updating them.
Create configuration definitions and templates used to deploy configuration changes on multiple Juniper Networks devices.
Easily apply a configuration to a device. Configlets are configuration tools provided by Junos OS.
Images and Scripts
Deploy, verify, enable, disable, remove, and execute scripts deployed to devices.
Download a device image from the Juniper Networks Software download site to your local file system, upload it into Junos Space, and deploy it on one or more devices simultaneously.
Generate customized reports for managing network resources.
Assess the performance of your network, not only at a point in time, but also over a period of time.
Monitor the progress of ongoing jobs.
Role Based Access Control
Add, manage, and delete users, custom roles, domains, and remote profiles. From this workspace, you can also manage user sessions.
View and filter system audit logs, including those for user login and logout, tracking device-management tasks, and displaying services that were provisioned on devices.
Add network nodes, back up your database, manage licenses and applications, or troubleshoot.
You can expand any of these workspaces by clicking the expansion symbol (+) to the left of its name. When you do so, the next level of the task tree for that workspace opens. Some items at this second level may also be expandable subgroups.
You can expand as many workspaces or task groups as you like; previously expanded ones remain open until you collapse them. The design of the task tree enables you to jump from area to area within an application with the minimum number of selections.
When you log in to Junos Space Platform, the main window shows the application dashboard by default. If you have set another home page, the main window displays that page.
When you select a workspace name (as opposed to expanding it), the main window changes and displays graphical statistics for that workspace. This display is called Workspace Statistics. It is similar in functionality to the overall system dashboard, but it pertains only to that workspace.
Selecting the name of a task group or task within the workspace causes the main window to display an inventory of the objects managed in tabular format.
