Create Resource (Freeform)

SUMMARY Resources are values that you assign to systems and links. Resources include IPv4 addresses, IPv6 addresses, ASNs, VNIs, VLANs, and integers.

Resources are located inside groups (folders) that you create. (Resources can't be put directly in the predefined Root group). If you haven't created groups yet, create them before proceeding here.

  1. From the blueprint, navigate to Staged > Resource Management > Blueprint Resources.
  2. Click the group where you want to put the new resource, then click Create (right-side) and select Resource.

    The group you selected appears in the immutable Parent field.

  3. Enter a resource name and select a resource type (IPv4, Host IPv4, IPv6, Host IPv6, ASN, VNI, VLAN, Integer).
  4. To have Apstra automatically pull resources from pools, select the applicable allocation group from the drop-down list.
  5. To manually allocate a resource, enter the value. in the Value (override) field.
  6. Enter a subnet prefix length, as applicable.
  7. Click Create to create the resource and return to the Blueprint Resources view.
