    Defining Global SDN Property Values in the Cloud CPE Selfcare Application for MX Series Routers

    This topic is intended for cCPE service providers.

    This topic describes how to configure SDN global properties for Contrail-based virtual CPE services in the cCPE Selfcare Portal.

    Before you can configure SDN properties, you need to enable SDN capabilities in the cCPE Selfcare Portal. See Enabling Software-Defined Networking in the Cloud CPE Selfcare Application for MX Series Routers.

    Note: Unless you specify service-specific properties, cCPE Selfcare Application always uses the global property value for a virtual service.

    Caution: Do not delete any SDN properties even if you do not specify values for them in the Selfcare Portal. Deleting an SDN property can cause the service not launch properly.

    To configure global SDN property values:

    1. In the Selfcare Portal task pane, select Administration > Service Definition.

      The Service Definition page is displayed.

    2. Select the Global Properties tab.

      The Global properties page displays a list of all SDN properties and their default values. Following are the categories for global properties

      • Customers—Includes customer-specific properties. For example, customer left, right, and management network names.
      • Sites—Includes site-specific properties. For example, site-id.
      • Access links—Includes access link-specific properties. For example, the routing instance associated with the access link and subnet information.
      • SDN targets—Includes the username and password credentials for Contrail.
      • Service definitions—Includes service-specific properties. For example, the virtual service name the Selfcare Portal displays and the policies associated with the service.
      • Tenants—Includes properties associated with Contrail tenants. For example, the Contrail project’s FQDN.
      • Service instances—Includes properties to uniquely identify the service instance.
    3. From the Global Properties page, select the Value field for the property.
    4. Specify the new value in the Value field.
    5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each property for which you want to override the value.
    6. Select the Save () icon to save your changes.

      Note: You must save your changes within each SDN category on the Global Properties page.
