Service Insight Targeted PBNs Overview


Junos Space Service Insight provides proactive bug notifications (PBNs) as a proactive measure to alert you about known issues that can impact the devices in your network. It is an effective means for Juniper Support Systems (JSS) to communicate information collected while helping one customer fix issues, to another customer who could face similar issues.

Using information, which was collected when issues were reported to JSS, JSS identifies devices on your network with similar conditions. When devices on your network are identified to have similar configuration as those devices on which issues were found, JSS identifies the PBNs for these devices. Service Insight picks up these PBNs once every 24 hours and displays them on the Targeted PBNs page (Insight Central > Targeted PBNs).

These PBNs keep you aware of the possible impacts the issues identified can have on your network and also the workarounds to fix the issue. The workarounds suggest temporary fixes and instructions that you can follow to protect your network.

In Service Insight, you can view targeted PBNs on the Targeted PBNs page as shown in Figure 1.

A targeted PBN contains the fields listed in Table 1. On the targeted PBNs page, you can filter and view PBNs based on organization. Using a targeted PBN, you can scan for devices impacted by the vulnerabilities described in the targeted PBN in an organization and list the devices; for more information, see Scanning PBNs for Impact on Devices.,
