    Auditing a Device Template Configuration

    You audit the configuration in the template that is already deployed to the devices. You perform an audit to verify the extent to which the configuration in the template and that on the deployed devices match. You can use this workflow to audit both Configuration templates and Quick templates.

    To audit a template configuration:

    1. On the Junos Space Network Management Platform user interface, select Device Templates > Templates.

      The Templates page is displayed.

    2. Select the template whose deployment you want to audit and select Audit Template Configuration from the Actions menu.

      The Audit Template Configuration page is displayed. You can view the name of the template, current selected version of the template, Junos OS version of the template, and devices that belong to the same device family.

    3. (Optional) From the Selected Template Version drop-down list, select the version of the template.

      The list of devices displayed is filtered according to the version of the template you select in this field. The list is filtered to display only those devices on which the template is currently deployed.

    4. You can select devices manually, by filtering devices by device properties, by using tags, or by providing a CSV file with filter criteria:
      • To search for devices manually, enter the search criteria in the Search field and click the Search icon.

        The list of devices are filtered by the search criteria.

      • To filter devices by device properties, select the check box next to the appropriate device on the Column Filter drop-down list.
      • To select devices by using tags, select an appropriate tag from the Tag Filter drop-down list.
      • To provide filter criteria through a CSV file, click the CSV Filter icon and upload the CSV file with the filter criteria by using the Upload a CSV pop-up window.
    5. Click Next.

      The devices you selected are listed on the left of the page.

    6. Select whether to audit the template configuration against the configuration in devices now or later:
      • To audit the template configuration against the configuration in devices now, click Finish.
      • To schedule this task for a later time:
        1. Select the Schedule at a later time option button.
        2. Enter the date in the Date field in DD/MM/YYYY format.
        3. Enter the time in the Time field in hh:mm format.
    7. (Optional) Click the Recurrence check box and specify the frequency at which to audit the device template configuration against the configuration in the devices.
    8. Click Finish.

      The Audit Template Job Confirmation dialog box is displayed.

    9. Click OK to close the dialog box.

      You are redirected to the Templates page. You can view the results of the job triggered for this comparison on the Job Management page.

      Note: Each audit is performed as a job. It may take some time to finish auditing, if a large number of devices were selected for auditing.

      The possible statuses for a template audit are:

      • INSYNC— The configuration in the template is completely available on the device.
      • OUTOFSYNC— The configuration in the template is changed or the configuration on the device is modified.
      • NOTAVAIL— The configuration in the template is not available on the device. This status is displayed when no audit is performed on a device for a particular template.

      You can view these statuses in the Summary column on the Job Management page.
