Modifying Service Instances


On the Service Designer page, you can view the collection of service templates defined for several applications, such as stateful firewall or CGNAT.

To modify service template instances, such as ADC, SFW, CGNAT, or TLB templates:

  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 Deploy icon on the Edge Services Director banner.

    The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
  3. From the task pane, select Service Edit.

    The Service Instances page is displayed in the right pane, listing all the previously defined service templates.

  4. From the View pane, perform one of the following tasks:
    • Click the ADC button.

      The list of ADC service templates is displayed. You need not click this button if you are launching the Service Designer page for the first time or are navigating to this page from another mode or a different page. You need to click this button only if you are viewing the other service templates, such as CGNAT or TLB.

    • Click the SFW button.

      The list of SFW templates is displayed.

    • Click the TLB button.

      The list of TLB templates is displayed.

    • Click the CGNAT button.

      The list of CGNAT templates is displayed.

  5. Click the Lock icon above the table of listed packet filters. The Select Reference Config dialog box is displayed.
  6. From the Service Gateway Name drop-down list, select the SDG group to which the packet filter must be applied.
  7. From the Host Name drop-down list, select the hostname of the SDG.
  8. In the Select Common Components section, select the check boxes beside the service modules or components, such as packet filters, SFW rules, or CGNAT rules, that are displayed. The displayed components depend on the attributes that are previously defined for that selected packet filter. For example, if the service policy is for stateful firewall, SFW rules and SFW rule sets are shown. Select the check box beside Config Category to select all the service components.

    Starting with Edge Services Director Release 1.1, you can associate multiple client-facing and server-facing VRF instances from the enhanced service edit mode (which you can access from Service View of Deploy mode, with TLB selected in View pane and Service Edit selected in the Tasks pane, and selecting the check boxes beside the Server-Facing and Client-Facing modules in the Select Common Components section).

  9. Click Save to save the modified association.
  10. Select the check box beside the template you want to modify.
  11. Open the Modify menu above the list of templates to modify an existing template, and select the component or service attribute, such as application or rule, that you want to edit.
  12. Perform one of the following from the drop-down menu displayed for each component:
    • To retrieve the service component and import into the database of Edge Services Director, select Import Object. The Import Services dialog box appears. You can import the service templates assigned to SDGs or choose from a list of all of the predefined templates in the database. Also, you can either import all of the components of a service or specific components.

    • To create the component afresh, select Create New. The Create page corresponding to the service component appears. You can define the attributes for the service component in the same manner as you define the elements during the creation of a service template.

  13. Click the down arrow in the Actions menu and select Send for Deployment to create a deployment plan for the particular service template and save the plan.

    If you create a deployment plan from Service view of Deploy mode, the Edit Service Instance page is displayed. You can modify the SDGs associated with the service instance and also modify the service instance attributes as necessary by either clicking the buttons corresponding to the various settings at the top of the wizard page to directly traverse to the page you want to modify or clicking the navigation buttons at the bottom of the wizard page to go to the different pages of the wizard. Click Finish to create a deployment plan.

    A deploy plan is created for the service template with the devices that are assigned to it when you view the Deployment Plans page.

    From the Deployment plans page, you can select Reject or Approve from the Actions drop-down list to reject or approve the deployment plan and make it available for commissioning to the devices.

  14. Select Discard changes from the Actions menu to ignore the modifications done to a policy or filter template.
