    Understanding the Deploy Mode Tasks Pane

    The Tasks pane in Deploy mode lists the available tasks. All Deploy mode tasks are always available, regardless of the scope selected in the View pane.

    Deploy mode tasks are divided into the following categories:

    • Configuration Deployment—These tasks enable you to deploy configuration changes to devices and manage configuration deployment jobs. Table 1 describes the configuration deployment tasks.
    • Image Management—These tasks enable you to manage software images on devices. Table 2 describes the image management tasks.
    • Device Management—These tasks enable you to view the device inventory, resynchronize the configuration of out-of-sync devices, manage the administrative state of ports, manage QFabric node groups, and convert QSFP+ port configuration. Table 3 describes the device management tasks.
    • Device Configuration File Management—These tasks enable you manage configuration files on managed devices. Table 4 describes the device configuration file management tasks.
    • Baseline Management—These tasks enable you to manage baseline configuration of devices. Table 5 describes the baseline management tasks.
    • Zero Touch Provisioning—These tasks enable you to provision new Juniper Networks switches in your network automatically—without manual intervention. Table 6 describes the zero touch provisioning tasks.
    • Key Tasks—Network Director enables you to group the tasks that you perform frequently and create a list of key tasks. You can add any task from the Tasks pane to the Key Tasks list by selecting a task and clicking the plus (+) sign that appears adjacent to the task. For some modes, you can see that Network Director has predefined some key tasks for you. You can modify this set of tasks to suit your requirements. This feature is available in Task pane irrespective of your current mode, scope, or view.

    Table 1 through Table 4 describe the tasks in each task category.
