Viewing and Exporting the Software Inventory of Managed Devices

 

Junos Space Network Management Platform displays a list of currently installed software inventory for all DMI schema–based managed devices. The software inventory information is generated when the device is first discovered and synchronized with the Junos Space Platform database. You can also update the software inventory information, if the software inventory on the device is changed by a local user, by synchronizing the device with the Junos Space Platform database. The synchronization with the database depends on whether the network or Junos Space Platform is the system of record.

If the network is the system of record, Junos Space Platform database is automatically synchronized. You can also manually resynchronize the Junos Space Platform software database with the device by using the Resynchronize with Network action. For more information, refer to Resynchronizing Managed Devices with the Network.

If Junos Space Platform is the system of record, neither automatic nor manual resynchronization is available. You can reset the device configuration from the values in the Junos Space Platform database if and when you want to do so. For more information, refer to Systems of Record in Junos Space Overview.

You can export device software inventory to a CSV file, which can be used in other applications.
