Deploying a Service
This procedure schedules a service for deployment on the network. Use this procedure to perform the following tasks:
Deploy a new service.
Deploy a modified service.
Redeploy a service order that failed deployment.
You cannot deploy an invalid service order.
To schedule a service for deployment:
- From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
- Click the Deploy icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
- From the Network Services > Connectivity task
pane, select Service Provisioning > Deploy Services. The Manage Service Deployment page is displayed on the right pane.
From Build mode of Service View, in the View pane, if you select the Connectivity item in the tree under Network Services, without expanding the tree and selecting a specific service type, such as E-Line Services, IP Services, or E-LAN Services, the top pane displays a set of five pie charts that enable you to view the different service orders configured, and their associated audit and monitoring statuses. The FA Status chart displays the functional audit status for the service orders. The Device State graph displays the statuses of devices on which services are being provisioned and commissioned. The Fault Status chart displays the connectivity fault management details for the service orders. The SLA Status chart displays the service-level agreement details for the service orders. The PM Status chart displays the performance management details for the service orders. The count or percentage of service orders in the pie chart segments sum up to the total number of configured service orders. Mouse over each segment of the pie to view the number corresponding to the percentage of service orders for each of the charts. These charts provide a visual overview of customers and service orders on your network, and enables you to quickly access related and commonly needed information. For example, you can check for failed service orders and then access a list of failed requests so you can begin to take restoration measure.

The Services by Type graph displays the count of services for each type of service definition. Mouse over each segment of the pie to view the number corresponding to the percentage of service orders for each of the charts. This chart provides a visual overview of customers and service orders on your network, and enables you to quickly access related and commonly needed information.
