Viewing and Assigning Shared Objects

 

Shared object is a template. You assign a shared object to assign the configuration in the template to devices.

You can view the configurations created using Junos Space applications and Junos Space Platform workspaces that are applicable for each device. You can assign and queue them up before deploying them to devices. You can also accept or reject the pending configurations, and you can change the sequence in which these changes are committed. Accepting a configuration is assigning it, and rejecting it is unassigning it.

All configurations that have been created for the device are assigned and will be candidates for deployment, unless you unassign them.

Viewing assigned shared objects can only be done on a per-device basis.

You can select only one device at a time. To view assigned shared objects:

  1. On the Network Management Platform user interface, select Devices > Device Management.

    The Device Management page is displayed.

  2. Select the device whose assigned objects you want to view, and select Device Configuration > View/Assign Shared Objects from the Actions menu

    The View/Assign Shared Objects page is displayed. It lists the running configuration and the pending configurations on the right and displays the workspaces where these configuration originated from on the left.

    The following Table 1 lists the columns available on this page.
