Preconfiguring the Third-Party OSS Device for Cross Provisioning Platform


To preconfigure the third-party OSS device:

  1. In the Network Management Platform, select Administration > Applications.

    The Applications window appears.

  2. In the Applications window, select Cross Provisioning Platform.
  3. From the Actions menu, select Modify Application Settings.

    The Modify Application Settings window appears.

  4. In the Modify Application Settings window, select OSSConfigParameters.

    The OSSConfigParameters pane lists the OSS configuration parameters that you must configure for the following vendors:

    • Alcatel OSS Configuration

    • Canoga OSS Configuration

    You can view or configure for the OSS parameters.

  5. In the OSSConfigParameters pane, select Alcatel OSS Configuration or Canoga OSS Configuration.

    The OSSConfigParameters pane lists a set of parameters that you can configure for Nokia or Canoga Perkins.

  6. Fill in the fields in the OSSConfigParameters panel for a specific vendor as described in the following table.

    OSS Parameter


    Primary Server IP

    IP address of the primary server.

    Primary Server Port

    Port number of the primary server.

    Backup Server IP

    IP address of the backup server.

    Backup Server Port:

    Port number of the backup server.

    HTTP Connection Timeout (milliseconds)

    Duration of HTTP connection (in milliseconds) before the timeout elapses.

    Maximum API Requests

    Maximum number of simultaneous API requests permitted.

    Fetched the port details for the number of devices that you have specified here.

    OSS User Name

    Username for accessing the OSS server.

    OSS User Password

    Synchronize OSS Inventory daily at given time

    Sets the daily time at which the CPP system synchronizes third-party devices, added or deleted from the CPP system, with the OSS server.

    Note: The time at which the synchronization job runs is associated with the location of the browser in which you are using the Junos Space software. That is, the synchronization job runs according to the browser time where the job is scheduled, not according to the time where the Junos Space server is located.

    Use HTTP Protocol

    If this check box is selected, the CPP system uses the HTTP protocol.

    The default protocol is HTTPS.

    Use primary server

    If this check box is selected, the CPP system communicates with the primary OSS server. If the check box is not selected, the system interacts with the backup server.

  7. When you are done entering information in the OSSConfigParameters fields, click Modify.

If you want to modify the application settings of the Cross Provisioning Platform application, select Administration > Applications > Cross Provisioning Platform and select Modify Application Settings in the Network Management platform. You can uninstall the application by selecting Cross Provisioning Platform > Uninstall Application.


The OSS configuration values are still retained and reflected in the corresponding fields even after you uninstall and reinstall the application.
