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.
