    Deploying CLI Configlet Details

    You apply a CLI Configlet to devices when you want to push the configuration to devices. The CLI Configlet can be deployed to only one device, or the CLI Configlet can be deployed to multiple devices simultaneously. The saved configlets that are being propagated to devices can be viewed by selecting the Deployment option in the task pane. You can select a particular Configlet and view the parameters contained in it in the form of configuration stanzas and hierarchy levels. Each level in the hierarchy is indented to indicate each statement's relative position in the hierarchy. Each level is generally set off with braces, with an open brace ({) at the beginning of each hierarchy level and a closing brace (}) at the end.

    To select whether to apply the CLI Configlet now or later:

    1. From the View selector, select Device View. The workspaces that you can configure in this view are displayed.
    2. Click the Deploy icon in the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed.
