Agent Profiles (Devices)

Agent profiles enable the logical link between device credentials, a device configuration key-value store, and a selection of user-uploaded packages. With agent profiles, you can configure parameters for a certain class of devices that exist in the network and edit their device agent settings as a group. Agent profiles include the following details:

Open Options (offbox only) Passes configured parameters to offbox agents. For example, to use HTTPS as the API connection from offbox agents to devices, use the key-value pair: proto-https - port-443. You can override the following default values with open options:
  • commit_timeout - 60 (integer: seconds)
  • telemetry_timeout - 100 (integer: seconds)
  • probe_timeout: 5 (integer: seconds)
  • log_config_diff - True (boolean)
Packages Admin-provided software packages stored on the Apstra server that you can apply to each device agent that you create using the profile.

From the left navigation menu, navigate to Devices > System Agents > Agent Profiles to go to the agent profile table view. You can create, clone, edit, and delete agent profiles.
