    Junosphere User Interface Overview

    The Junosphere user interface has several parts: a banner across the top, which contains icons for online help, settings, and logging out; a navigation tree on the left side from which you can select different tasks; a main display window in the center, which takes up the majority of the screen; and a taskbar across the bottom of the main display, which contains tabs for any windows that are currently open. If you click the Help icon in the top banner of the screen, online help appears on the right side of the screen. The bottom of the screen also contains links for information about Junosphere.

    To view a video overview of the Junosphere user interface, as well as information on how to order Junosphere capacity, visit the Junosphere Toolbox.

    Welcome Screen

    When you log in to Junosphere, the first screen you see is called the Welcome screen. It provides access to user manuals and feature documentation, links to contact customer service, and also links to documentation for the different virtual network elements that are currently available in Junosphere.

    If this is the first time that you have logged in, an End-User License Agreement (EULA) appears (which you must accept in order to proceed), followed by a Required Settings dialog box that lists the required settings and recommended downloads.


    The banner is located at the top of the main display and contains several icon buttons for global actions.

    The following table describes the global action icons that appear in the banner.

    To log out, click the icon in the upper right corner of the Junosphere interface.

    Navigation Tree

    The navigation tree, located on the left side of the main display, enables you to navigate to different tasks in Junosphere.

    You can collapse the navigation tree by clicking on the double left arrows that appear in the Navigation header, and you can re-expand it using the double right arrows. You can also collapse and expand each task group in the navigation tree by using the double arrows that appear in each task group header.

    Note: The tasks that are displayed in the navigation tree will look different depending on the type of Junosphere user.

    The navigation tree contains two different sections. The first section is called Favorites and contains frequently used tasks. The second section is called Tasks and contains a full list of tasks that you have access to in Junosphere.

    Main Display Window

    When you select a task from the navigation tree, the window related to that task appears in the main display window. Some tasks have multiple sections that appear in the main window. Each section within the main display window can be minimized and maximized using the plus (+) and minus (-) icons located in the top right corner of the section.

    Junosphere automatically logs you out after 30 minutes of being idle. If you are working in the topology wizard, you might lose work if you have not saved your changes. To avoid this issue, save your topology frequently.

    Note: Junosphere saves work in the topology wizard after every five changes made while creating the topology.

    Editing Tables in Junosphere

    In Junosphere, any table that contains text in black font is editable. To edit information in Junosphere tables, type directly into the field and click anywhere outside the edited field. A red flag appears in the upper left corner of the field, indicating that a change was made. After you have edited the fields in a table, click the Save button at the bottom right corner of the table. You cannot edit any fields that contain bold, blue font.

    Note: In the Reports section of Junosphere, all font appears in black. However, you cannot edit any information that appears in reports.

    You can edit multiple fields in a table before clicking the Save button.

    Sorting Tables in Junosphere

    Every column in a Junosphere table can be sorted alphabetically, hidden from the table, and its contents can be filtered. To sort a column:

    1. Click the drop-down arrow on the right side of the column title that appears when you hover your mouse over the title.

      A drop-down menu appears.

      • To sort a table alphabetically, click either Sort Ascending or Sort Descending from the drop-down list.
      • To hide a column, go to Columns and deselect the column from the list that you want to hide.
      • To filter the column, go to Filters and type a term in the search box.

    The taskbar is located at the bottom of the main display. The taskbar lists all of the windows that you currently have open in Junosphere. You can click on the tabs in the taskbar to open the window you want to use. To close a tab in the taskbar, right-click on the tab and select Close.

    Context-Sensitive Help

    In each section of the main display window there is a question mark(?) icon located in the top right corner. This icon provides a brief overview of the section and specifies which tasks you can perform in the section.
