    Comparing a Device Template Configuration with a Device Configuration

    You compare the configuration in a device template with the configuration in a device to view the differences between the configurations. To compare the device template configuration with the device configuration, the configurations must belong to the same device family.

    To compare a device template configuration with a device configuration:

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

      The Templates page that appears displays all the templates that currently exist in the Junos Space Platform database.

    2. Select the device template that you want to compare with and select Compare Template Against Device from the Actions menu.

      The Compare Template Against Device 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.
    4. You can search for devices to compare with manually by using columns that represent the status of the device, 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 is 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 that you selected are listed on the left of the page.

    6. Select whether to compare the template configuration against the configuration in the devices now or later:
      • To compare the template configuration against the configuration in the 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 compare the device template configuration against the device configuration.
    8. Click Finish.
