    Creating Device Discovery Profiles in Security Director

    Use this page to configure a device discovery profile that you can use to discover devices.

    Device discovery is the process of finding a device and then synchronizing the device inventory and configuration with the Junos Space database. To use device discovery, Junos Space must be able to connect to the device.

    Before You Begin


    Configuring Device Discovery Profiles


    To configure a device discovery profile:

    1. Select Devices > Device Discovery.

      The Device Discovery page appears.

    2. Click the + icon.

      The Create Discovery Profile page appears.

    3. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.

      Note: Fields marked with * are mandatory

    4. Click OK.

      A new device discovery profile is created and you are returned to the Device Discovery page. A Job Details page pops up after a few seconds and displays the details of the job scheduled.

    5. Click OK to close the Job Details page.
