    Importing CLI Configlets

    You import CLI Configlets in the XML format to add CLI Configlets from a local computer to the Junos Space Network Management Platform database. You can also import multiple CLI Configlets in a single CLI Configlet XML file. Starting with Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 15.2R1, you can also import CLI Configlets from a Git repository to the Junos Space Network Management Platform database.

    Note: To select and import multiple CLI Configlet XML files from the local computer:

    • Use the Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome Web browser. Currently, Internet Explorer does not support the selection of multiple files.
    • Import multiple XML files in the TAR format.

    Using a Git repository to import CLI Configlets creates a snapshot of the CLI Configlet Git repository on Junos Space Platform. You can synchronize CLI Configlets from the Git repository with the snapshot on Junos Space Platform and import CLI Configlets from the Git snapshot even if no active connection exists with the Git repository. For more information about Git repository management on Junos Space Platform, see Git Repositories in Junos Space Overview.

    Junos Space Platform validates the CLI Configlets for the following during import:

    • A valid file format. CLI Configlets can be imported in XML format. Starting with Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 15.2R1, CLI Configlets can also be imported in TAR (containing XML files) format.
    • A valid and unique name

    If Junos Space Platform detects a conflict during import and you choose to overwrite the CLI Configlet, the conflicting CLI Configlet is saved with an incremented version number in the domain and all subdomains.

    To import a CLI Configlet to Junos Space Platform:

    1. On the Junos Space Network Management Platform user interface, select CLI Configlets > Configlets.

      The Configlets page is displayed.

    2. Click the Import CLI Configlet icon on the toolbar.

      The Import CLI Configlet page is displayed.

    3. Import CLI Configlets from a local computer or the Git snapshot of the CLI Configlet Git repository.

      Note: The fields on the Junos Space user interface to import CLI Configlets from a Git repository are displayed only if an active Git repository is configured on Junos Space Platform.

      1. To import one or more CLI Configlets from the local computer:

        1. Click the Import from files option button.

          The Import CLI Configlet page displays the fields to import a CLI Configlet from the local computer.

        2. From the Import from files expandable area, click Browse and select the CLI Configlet file in the XML or TAR format.
        3. (Optional) To view a sample XML CLI Configlet file, click the View Sample XML hyperlink.

          A browser pop-up window is displayed.

          You can download the sample XML file to the local computer.

      2. To import one or more CLI Configlets from the Git snapshot:

        1. Click the Import from git option button.

          The Import CLI Configlet page displays the fields to import the CLI Configlets from the Git snapshot.

          The Import from git expandable area displays the URL to the active CLI Configlet Git repository and the time when the Git snapshot on Junos Space Platform was last synchronized with the Git repository.

        2. From the Git Branch drop-down list, select the branch on the Git snapshot from which the CLI Configlets should be imported.

          By default, the first branch in the Git snapshot is selected.

        3. (Optional) To synchronize the Git snapshot on Junos Space Platform with the active CLI Configlet Git repository, click Sync Now.

          If the synchronization is successful, the Last Sync field is updated and you can import the latest CLI Configlets.

          By default, the Git snapshot on Junos Space Platform synchronizes with the active CLI Configlet Git repository every hour.

          Note: If Junos Space Platform cannot connect to the CLI Configlet Git repository, an error message is displayed in a pop-up window. Click OK to close the pop-up window.

        4. (Optional) To view a sample XML CLI Configlet file, click the View Sample XML hyperlink.

          A browser pop-up window is displayed.

          You can download the sample XML file to the local computer.

    4. Click Next.

      The Import Configlets page that appears displays the CLI Configlets from the selected Git branch or the local computer, in a table. Table 1 displays the columns in the table.

      If you imported CLI Configlets in the TAR format, Junos Space Platform displays the CLI Configlets in the TAR file on the Import Configlets page.

      Table 1: Import Configlets page

      Column

      Description

      Configlet

      Name of the CLI Configlet

      Conflict State

      State of the CLI Configlet: NEW, CONFLICT, or NO_CONFLICT

      The column displays NEW if the CLI Configlet does not exist in Junos Space Platform.

      If you are importing a CLI Configlet from the Git snapshot, the column displays NO_CONFLICT when the CLI Configlet you are importing was earlier imported from the same branch of the Git snapshot.

      If you are importing a CLI Configlet from the local computer, the column displays CONFLICT when:

      • The CLI Configlet with the same name already exists in Junos Space Platform.

      If you are importing a CLI Configlet from the Git snapshot, the column displays CONFLICT when:

      • The CLI Configlet was created and modified in Junos Space Platform and is currently imported from the Git snapshot.
      • The CLI Configlet was earlier imported from the Git snapshot and modified in Junos Space Platform (The Git Version column displays a warning icon).
      • The CLI Configlet was earlier imported from a different branch of the Git snapshot.

      Domain

      Domain with which the CLI Configlet is associated

      The column is empty if the CLI Configlet does not exist in Junos Space Platform.

      Latest Version

      Latest version of the identical CLI Configlet that is currently stored in the Junos Space Platform database

      The column is empty if the CLI Configlet does not exist in Junos Space Platform.

      Git Version

      Commit ID of the CLI Configlet in the Git repository when the CLI Configlet was last imported to Junos Space Platform from the Git snapshot.

      • A Warning icon is displayed if the CLI Configlet was modified in Junos Space Platform after importing the CLI Configlet from the Git snapshot.
      • The column is empty if the CLI Configlet does not exist in Junos Space Platform or if the CLI Configlet was never imported from the Git snapshot.

      Git Branch

      Git branch from which the CLI Configlet was last imported

      The column is empty if the CLI Configlet does not exist in Junos Space Platform or if the CLI Configlet was never imported from the Git snapshot.

      Last Commit

      Commit ID of the last commit operation of the CLI Configlet in the selected branch of the Git repository

      The column is empty if the CLI Configlet is imported from a local computer.

    5. (Optional) To stop importing CLI Configlets that display a CONFLICT state, select the Exclude conflicting configlets from import check box.

      All CLI Configlets displaying the Conflict state CONFLICT are removed from the Import Configlets page. The Import Configlets page displays only those CLI Configlets that will be imported to the Junos Space Platform database.

      Note: If some CLI Configlets cannot be imported, a warning message is displayed in a pop-up window with the list of CLI Configlets that are not selected for import. Click OK to close the pop-up window.

    6. Click Finish.

      Note: If you import CLI Configlets displaying the CONFLICT state, a warning message is displayed. Click OK to import the CLI Configlets. These CLI Configlets are imported with an incremented version number.

      The Import Configlets Job Information dialog box is displayed.

      • Click the Job ID link to view the job results.

        Note: If the fields in the CLI Configlet XML file contains invalid values, the job results display the CLI Configlets that were not imported due to invalid values.

        You are directed to the Job Management page with a filtered view of the job.

      • To return to the Configlets page, click OK.

      When the job is complete, the CLI Configlets are imported to Junos Space Platform.
