Importing Applications

 

You can define application protocols for the stateful firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) services to use in match condition rules. An application protocol, or application layer gateway (ALG), defines application parameters using information from network Layer 3 and above. Examples of such applications are FTP and H.323. The application-protocol allows you to specify which of the supported application protocols (ALGs) to configure and include in an application set for service processing.

To import an application:

  1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to this view are displayed.
  2. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Build icon on the Edge Services Director banner.

    The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
  3. Select Object Builder from the task pane.

    The Object Builder page is displayed.

  4. Click the plus sign (+) next to Object Builder in the task pane to expand the tree and display the list of objects.
  5. From the task pane, select Applications to open the Applications page on the right pane. The list of previously imported objects is displayed.

    To filter and sort the display of objects, enter the name of the object as a match criterion in the Search box and click the Search icon. The page refreshes to display only the object names that match with the search term. You can use the paging controls to navigate across multiple pages of objects as necessary.

  6. Click the Import icon.

    The Add to Object Builder dialog box is displayed.

  7. Do one of the following for the Import section:
    • Select the From Existing Service Gateway radio button if you want to import the application from SDGs that are present in the Edge Services Director database.

    • Select the From XML radio button if you want to import the application from an XML configuration file on an external system.

  8. If you selected the option to import the object from SDGs, do the following:
    • Click the Normal View tab to view the list of SDGs. You can search for specific SDGs by entering a search item and clicking the Search icon.

      Alternatively, click the Group View tab to view the list of SDG groups. You can search for specific SDG groups by entering a search item and clicking the Search icon.

    • Click the plus sign (+) next to the All Service Gateways item to expand the tree structure that displays the list of SDGs or SDG groups. If the SDG pair is configured, you can select one of the devices, master or standby, from which you want to import the object.

      Alternatively, if you selected the Group View tab, you can select an SDG from the groups displayed from which you want to import the object.

    • Click Import. The object is added to the database and can be used during configuration of services or policies.

  9. If you selected the option to import from an XML file, do the following:
    • Click Browse beside the File Name field to navigate to the path where an XML file is available to be imported.

    • Click Import. The object is added to the database and can be used during configuration of services or policies.
