Modifying a Saved Service Order
Before a service order can affect a service, it must transition through the following states:
Requested—When the service provisioner has created the service order, but has not yet attempted to deploy it or schedule it for deployment, the service order is in the Requested state.
Scheduled—After the service provisioner has scheduled the service order for deployment, the service order transitions to the Scheduled state.
In Progress—When a scheduled service order reaches its time for deployment, it transitions to the transitory In Progress state. From this state, the Junos Space software attempts to deploy the service.
Validated—When all the information in the service order is successfully validated, the service order transitions to the Validated state.
Completed—Successful deployment transitions the service order to the Completed state.
Invalid—If the Junos Space software cannot deploy the service because of invalid information in the service order itself, the service order enters the Invalid state. The service provisioner must resolve the issues that cause the failure before re-creating the service order and rescheduling it for deployment.
Failed Deploy—If the device is down or the Junos Space software is unable to push the service configuration to the device, the service order transitions to the Failed Deploy state.
Deactivated—When you disable a service order, the configuration attributes associated with such a service order are deactivated and commented out in the device settings. By disabling a service, the traffic processing for the traversed packets is impacted. In certain network topologies, you might require a service-related settings to be disabled for a certain period to perform troubleshooting or modification to the traffic-handling method, and you might want to reactivate a disabled service later when you have completed network maintenance and analysis work. In such a case, it might be beneficial to use the deactivation functionality for a service order. The deactivated service is propagated to the devices associated with the service order. To disable a service, the service must not contain any pending or uncommitted changes. Also, the service must be in the Deployed or Re-Activated state.
Reactivated—After you disable a service order to deactivate the configuration settings on devices mapped to the service, you might require the service settings to be reenabled after you have modified the service parameters, either directly on the device or using the Connectivity Services Director application. In such a case, you can use the reactivation functionality to revive and activate the service properties on devices. devices. To disable a service, the service must not contain any pending or uncommitted changes. Also, the service must be in the Deactivated state.
Figure 1 illustrates the service order states.
To view the state of a service order, in Deploy mode, select Network Services > Connectivity from the View pane and drill down to the type of service for which you want to modify a service order, and select Service Provisioning > Deploy Services from the task pane. The Manage Service Deployment inventory page lists the service orders and their state.
The Junos Space Connectivity Services Director application provides the flexibility to modify an existing service order. You can modify a service order when the order state is Requested, Validated, or Invalid. You cannot modify a service order when the order state is Scheduled, Completed, or Failed Deploy.
To modify a service order:
- In Deploy mode, select Network Services > Connectivity from the View pane and drill down to the type of service for which you want to modify a service order, and select Service Provisioning > Deploy Services from the task pane.
- From the Manage Service Deployment page, select an existing
service order, and then click Modify.
The Modify Service Order window appears.
The modify option is unavailable if the service order is in Scheduled, or Completed, or Failed Deployed state.
- Modify the fields as needed.
When you modify a service or a service order, the read-only fields in the different pages of the wizard for service or service order modification are grayed out to indicate that you cannot modify those attributes.
The following table lists the fields that you can modify in an E-Line service order, E-LAN service order, and IP service order.
E-Line Service Order
E-LAN Service Order
LIP Service Order
Inner VLAN ID
VLAN Tag to stack
Hub Route Target
Spoke Route Target
Hub Route Distinguisher
Spoke Route Distinguisher
RSVP LSP name
Autopick Interface IP Address
PW backup settings
Ethernet Option in case of Asymmetric
VRF Table label
Export Direct Routes
Customer VLAN Range Start
Customer VLAN Range End
IP address pool
Note: While modifying an IP service order, you must select the IP address pool.
Interface MAC limit
MAC table size
Disable tunnel services
Disable local switching
Fast reroute priority
Label block size
You can also change a local switching service order to a normal E-Line service order.
- Click Save.
The service order is modified. You can now deploy the service order with modified parameters to the device.
