    Viewing the Active Configuration

    Before you modify the configuration on a device, you need to view the current active configuration on the device. To view all the configuration options for a device, you need to upload the appropriate DMI schema to Junos Space Network Management Platform. If you have not uploaded the appropriate DMI schema for the device, Junos Space Platform uses the default DMI schema for the device.

    To view the active configuration on the device:

    1. On the Network Management Platform user interface, select Devices > Device Management.

      The Device Management page is displayed.

    2. Right-click the device whose active configuration you want to view and select Device Configuration > View Active Configuration.

      The View Active Configuration page is displayed.

      You can view the Junos OS statement hierarchy in the left pane. The right pane displays the CLI view of the active configuration on the device, and custom configuration views configured from the CLI Configlets workspace. You can also apply CLI Configlets that match the context of the device.

      By default, the right pane displays the Default View tab (active configuration on the device).

    3. (Optional) To view multiple configuration options simultaneously in the right pane:
      1. Click the Custom Settings icon in the left pane.

        The Modify Custom Settings page is displayed.

      2. Select the Enable Multiselect check box.
      3. Click OK.

        Multiple configuration options are displayed in the right pane.

    4. (Optional) To view the configuration options in alphabetical order:
      1. Select the Custom Settings icon in the left pane.

        The Modify Custom Settings page is displayed.

      2. Select the Enable Alphabetic Ordering check box.
      3. Click OK.

        The configuration options are displayed in alphabetical order in the left pane and the right pane.

      Note: The Enable Alphabetical Ordering feature is enabled only for your user account.

    5. (Optional) To add a configuration filter and view a specific set of configuration options, click the Create Filter icon in the left pane.

      The Add Configuration Filter page is displayed.

      For more information, see Creating a Configuration Filter.

    6. (Optional) Click the Edit filter icon to modify an existing configuration filter.
    7. (Optional) Click the Delete filter icon to delete the existing configuration filters.
    8. (Optional) To view the configuration on the device by the custom configuration view created from the CLI Configlets workspace, click the tab for that configuration view.

      For example, a configuration view Example 1 assigned to the Global domain displays a tab named Global/Example1.

      The right pane displays the configuration of the device as specified by format in the configuration view.

    9. (Optional) To view the configuration of the device in CLI format, click the Default View tab in the right pane.

      The right pane displays the current configuration of the device.

    10. (Optional) To refresh the CLI view of the device configuration, click the Refresh icon in the right pane.
    11. (Optional) To apply a CLI Configlet or submit the changes from a CLI Configlet to the change request of the device, click the Configure tab in the right pane.
      1. You can filter the list of CLI Configlets that you want to apply to the device manually or by using tags.
        • To filter the CLI Configlets manually, enter the search criteria in the Search field and click the Search icon.

          The list of CLI Configlets is further filtered by the search criteria.

        • To filter the CLI Configlets by using tags:
          1. Click the Select by tags option button.

            The Search field disappears.

          2. From the Select by tags drop-down list, select an appropriate tag.
          3. Click OK.

            The list of CLI Configlets is further filtered by the tag you selected.

          Note: This filtered view is retained even when you navigate to other inventory landing pages.

      2. Select a CLI Configlet from the filtered list.

        The parameters of the CLI Configlet are displayed.

      3. (Optional) To enter the values for the parameters of the CLI Configlet, click the appropriate cell in the Value column.
        • If you enter a value for a parameter that is a Password field, the value is hidden.
        • If you enter a value for a parameter that is a Confirm Password field, a pop-up window is displayed. Enter the password again and click OK.
      4. (Optional) If you want to apply the CLI Configlet later:

          The Validate Results page is displayed.

          A job is triggered. The Progress column displays the progress of validation against each device. When the validation is complete, the results of the validation are displayed. The Status column indicates the results of the validation. If the validation is unsuccessful, the details of the error are displayed on the page.

          Note: You can also view the validation results from the Job Management page. To view the validation results, double-click the job ID and click the View Results link corresponding to the device. The Validate CLI Configlet Job Remarks pop-up window is displayed.

          The configuration changes are included in the list of changes on the Review/Deploy Configuration page in the Devices workspace.

        An audit log is generated when you apply or submit the CLI Configlet.

    Note: You can select the Enable Alphabetical Ordering check box if you want to view the device configuration by using a configuration filter. The configuration options displayed in the filtered view are sorted in alphabetical order.
