Commit or Roll Back Configuration Changes in Paragon Insights

 

In Paragon Insights, when you make changes to the configuration, you can perform the following operations:

  • Save

  • Save and Deploy

  • Delete

  • Delete and Deploy

These operations and their effect on the Paragon Insights ingest services are explained in Table 1.

For changes that were not already deployed, you can either commit or roll back the changes, which you can do using the Health Configuration Deployment Status page; the procedure is provided below Table 1.

Table 1: Operations After Changing the Configuration in Paragon Insights

Operation

Explanation

Effect on Ingest Services

Save

Saves the changes to the database, but doesn't apply the changes to the ingest services.

No effect until the changes are committed.

Delete

Deletes the changes from the database. but doesn't apply the changes to the ingest services.

Save and Deploy

Saves the changes to the database and applies the changes to the ingest services.

The ingest services starts processing the data based on the changes configured.

Delete and Deploy

Deletes the changes from the database and applies the changes to the ingest services.

Note

Users might do the Save or Delete operations if they have multiple configuration steps and want to stack the configuration steps, so that they can later commit the changes at one go.

To commit or roll back configuration changes in Paragon Insights:

  1. On the Paragon Automation banner, click the deployment status icon.

    The Health Configuration Deployment Status page appears displaying:

    • The status of the last deployment.

    • The list of device groups and network groups for which pending changes have not been committed.

    • The list of device groups and network groups for which pending deletions have not been committed.

  2. You can do one of the following:
    • Commit any changes that are pending deployment:

      1. Click Commit.

        Paragon Insights triggers the commit operation and the configuration changes are applied to the ingest services. Depending on the number of configuration changes and number of device groups and network groups affected, applying the configuration changes to the ingest services might take between a few seconds or a few minutes to complete.

        After the operation completes, a confirmation message is displayed. Paragon Insights starts running the associated playbooks and starts ingesting the data.

      2. Go to Step 3.
    • Roll back any changes that are pending deployment:

      1. Click Rollback to roll back any changes that are pending deployment. (The roll back operation discards the pending configuration changes that were previously saved in the database.)

        Paragon Insights triggers the roll back operation and the configuration changes are rolled back almost immediately. After the rollback is complete, a confirmation message is displayed.

      2. Go to Step 3.
    Note

    After the roll back or commit operation is completed, the status of the last deployment in the Health Configuration Deployment Status page displays the last operation that was completed.

  3. Click Close to exit the page.

    You are returned to the previous page from which you accessed the Health Configuration Deployment Status page.
