New and Changed Features

This section describes the new features and the enhancements to existing features in Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 17.1R1.

  • Ability to view logical interfaces across multiple devices—From Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 17.1R1 onward, you can select multiple devices from the Device Management page to view logical interfaces on those devices. You can also execute scripts or apply CLI Configlets on multiple logical interfaces across devices. For more information, see Viewing Managed Devices.
  • Additional authentication modes for SCP server—From Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 17.1R1 onward, you can use a Junos Space key-based or a custom key-based authentication to save a copy of a report or to export a backup configuration to an SCP server. Previous versions of Junos Space Platform support only password-based authentication for SCP server. For more information, see Generating Reports and Backing Up Configuration Files.
  • Ability to select up to 200 inventory objects —From Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 17.1R1 onward, you can select up to 200 inventory objects for actions such as applying CLI Configlets or executing scripts. For more information, see Applying a CLI Configlet to Devices.
  • Autosave support for Application Settings—From Release 17.1R1 onward, Junos Space Network Management Platform automatically saves the changes that you make in each section of the Modify Application Settings workflow. When you click Modify after making changes to the settings in any of the sections of the Modify Application Settings workflow, Junos Space Platform displays the summary of changes that you made and any warnings related to the changes you made. You can review the changes and Confirm or Cancel the changes from the Change Summary dialog box. For more information, see Modifying Junos Space Network Management Platform Settings.
  • Job IDs for device assignments to domains—From Release 17.1R1 onward, Junos Space Network Management Platform generates a job ID when you assign one or more devices to a domain from the Role-Based Access Control workspace or the Device Management page. You can view the status of the job from the Job Management page. For more information, see Working with Domains.
  • Support for HTML5-based charts in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome—Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 17.1R1 supports AnyChart 6.2.0 to render high-quality HTML5-based charts in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. However, note that Junos Space Platform continues to use Adobe Flash Player to display charts in Internet Explorer. Charts displayed in Junos Space Platform such as Audit Log Statistical Graph, CLI Configlet Count by Device Family, Report Definition Count by User, and State of Jobs Run use AnyChart 6.2.0. The minimum browser requirements for supporting AnyChart 6.2.0 are Internet Explorer version 11 (with Adobe Flash Player), Google Chrome version 22, and Mozilla Firefox version 27.
  • Support for Cipher Block Chaining—From Release 17.1R1 onward, Junos Space Network Management Platform supports Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption.
  • Support for user-specific idle timeout setting—From Junos Space Platform Release 17.1R1 onward, you can specify user-specific idle timeout values when you create or modify a user account. An idle timeout value denotes a period of inactivity after which the user session expires. You can specify a value in the range of 0 through 480 minutes in the Automatic logout after inactivity (minutes) field of the Create User page or the Modify User page. If you set the idle timeout value to 0, the user session never expires. By default, the user-specific idle timeout value is set to the Automatic logout after inactivity (minutes) value configured in the User Settings section of the Administration > Application Settings page. For more information, see Configuring Users to Manage Objects in Junos Space Overview.
  • Support for Junos OS upgrade on EX Series Virtual Chassis devices—From Junos Space Platform Release 17.1R1 onward, you can upgrade Junos OS versions running on EX Series Virtual Chassis devices from Junos Space Platform. However, upgrade of Junos OS from Junos Space Platform is not supported on EX Series mixed Virtual Chassis, MIXED-MODE-EX-VC, devices. Upgrading Junos OS from Junos Space Platform on MIXED-MODE-EX-VC devices might cause errors and fail.
  • Ability to modify SNMPv3 trap configuration from the Junos Space Platform UI—From Junos Space Platform Release 17.1R1 onward, you can configure the SNMPv3 trap settings of the devices from the Junos Space Platform UI. The SNMPv3 trap configuration includes the username, security level, and authentication and privacy settings. Although you can configure multiple users, only the last modified user configuration is deployed on to the devices. The default username is JunosSpace. The security level for theJunosSpace user is by default set to authPriv. Modifications to SNMPv3 trap configuration trigger a restart of the OpenNMS and deployment of the new configuration onto the devices. For more information, see Managing SNMPv3 Trap Configuration.
  • Support for hardware catalogs—Starting from Release 17.1R1, Junos Space Network Management Platform supports hardware catalog that enables you to manage the addition of new hardware components such as line cards, FPCs, chassis, fan tray, and power supplies on Juniper Networks devices. When you use a hardware catalog, you do not need to update Junos Space Platform software every time a new hardware component is added to a Juniper Networks device that Junos Space Platform manages. When Juniper Networks adds new components, Juniper Networks provides a new hardware catalog that includes the information for managing the new components. You can download the new hardware catalog from Juniper Networks Subversion (SVN) Repository and import it to the Junos Space Platform. The content of the hardware catalog is derived from the latest DMI schema and always includes the latest hardware components present in the devices running Junos OS. Note that the hardware catalog does not enable fault and performance monitoring of the newly added device components. For more information, see Hardware Catalog Overview.
  • SSH fingerprint-based authentication for adding nodes to Junos Space fabric—Starting from Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 17.1R1, when you add new nodes to the Junos Space fabric, you can optionally specify the SSH fingerprint information for the authentication and authorization of nodes. This feature enhances the security and prevents automation attacks on the cluster through the node. For more information, see Adding a Node to an Existing Junos Space Fabric.
  • Managing missing DMI schemas—Starting from Release 17.1R1, Junos Space Network Management Platform provides the option to update existing schemas or download missing DMI schemas from the DMI schema repository during device resynchronization. For more information, see DMI Schema Management Overview.
