    Creating a VPLS Service Definition in Cross Provisioning Platform

    Cross Provisioning Platform is an extension of the Network Activate application within Junos Space, which provides a single pane of interaction to deploy services across vendor network devices. This topic discusses how a VPLS service definition is created and deployed across the devices of Juniper Networks involved in the Cross Provisioning Platform.

    To create a VPLS service definition, you need to create a configuration script in XSLT format and upload this script to Cross Provisioning Platform from the local system. You can add the script by selecting Cross Provisioning Platform > CPP > Scripts > Add Script.

    Note: Junos Space server scripts are mandatory to create a VPLS service definition.

    To create a VPLS service definition:

    1. In the Cross Provisioning Platform task pane, select CPP > Service Definitions.

      The Service Definitions page that appears displays a list of the existing service definitions.

    2. Click Create CPP Service Definition above the tool grid.

      The Create Service Definition page appears.

    3. Perform the following steps:
      • In the General section:
        1. In the Name field, type 3 through 128 alphanumeric characters to identify the name of the service definition.
        2. In the ID field, type 1 through 2147483647 integers to identify the service definition by a unique value.

          Note: The service definition ID is optional. If you do not provide any value in this field, the default value is -1. In the service definition selection grid, no value is displayed in the ID column. Each service definition is assigned a unique ID. If you give an existing ID value while creating a new service definition, exception occurs.

        3. In the Description field, type 3 through 256 alphanumeric characters to further identify the service definition you named.
        4. From the Type drop-down list, select VPLS.
      • In the JUNOS Space Service Scripts section:
        1. From the Select Junos Creation Script column, select a Junos Space service script that was written for the creation of the service definition. The script that you selected is automatically populated in the corresponding Creation text field.
        2. From the Select Junos Modification Script column, select a Junos Space service script that was written for the modification of the service definition. The script that you selected is automatically populated in the corresponding Modification text field.

        Note: The Junos Space service scripts are mandatory to create a VPLS service definition, whereas the SAM service scripts are optional.

      • In the SAM Service Scripts section:
        1. From the Select SAM Creation Script column, select a SAM service script that was written for the creation of the service definition. The script that you selected is automatically populated in the corresponding Creation text field.
        2. From the Select SAM Modification Script column, select a SAM service script that was written for the modification of the service definition. The script that you selected is automatically populated in the corresponding Modification text field.
    4. Click Create to create the service definition.

      The Service Definitions page that appears displays the list of existing service definitions along with the service definition that you created.

    5. Right-click the service definition you created from the Service Definitions window and select Publish Service Definition.

      The Publish Service Definitions dialog box that appears asks you to confirm the selection.

    6. Click Publish in the Publish Service Definitions window.

      The Service Definitions page that appears displays the list of existing service definitions along with the service definition that you created.

    7. Double-click the service definition to view the details.

      The Service Definition Details page that appears displays the details of the service definition along with the scripts that you uploaded.
