Create Connectivity Template for Multiple VNs on Same Interface (Example)

To create connectivity templates you add primitives (either singly or in groups) to a staging area, then you configure the parameters of those primitives. You can include up to 64 primitives in each connectivity template (increased from 18 as of Apstra version 4.0.1). We'll use examples to illustrate the process. First we'll show you how to create multiple virtual networks for the same interface.

  1. From the blueprint, navigate to Staged > Connectivity Templates and click Add Template. The staging area on the right contains the application point.
  2. In the Parameters tab, enter a connectivity name in the Title field. You can optionally enter a description, and tags that you can use during subsequent searches.
  3. The tabs Primitives, User-defined, and Pre-defined all contain primitives either singly or in groups. They are described in more detail in the overview. For this example, we'll add primitives one at a time from the Primitives tab. Click the Primitives tab, then click Virtual Network (Single). It's added to the staging area, and it's connected to the application point.
  4. Click the Parameters tab to see what you need to configure for that primitive. In this example, you need to select a virtual network and specify whether it is VLAN tagged or untagged.
  5. When it's successfully configured, the color of the selected primitive changes from red to gray. Click the Primitives tab.
  6. From the Primitives tab, click Virtual Network (Multiple).
  7. In the staging area, click Virtual Network (Multiple) (to make sure it's selected), click the Parameters tab and configure the primitive.
  8. Click Create to create the connectivity template and return to the table view where you'll see your newly created connectivity template.
