Configure ztp.json with Configurator

SUMMARY The Apstra ZTP Configurator is a GUI for configuring the ztp.json file.

The preferred method for configuring ztp.json is with the Apstra ZTP Configurator (new in Apstra version 4.2.0). Using the Configurator reduces the chances of human error. The steps below show you how to access the Configurator. Check out the platform-based examples, then refer to the ztp.json Keys page for details about all the keys.

Access the ztp.json Configurator

  1. If you're using the wizard, step 3 is to configure the ztp.json file. (You can skip this step for now and come back later to complete this configuration.) If you're not using the wizard, then from the left navigation menu of the Apstra ZTP GUI, click ztp.json
    The default screen goes to the Code Editor page.
  2. Click Configurator to go to the Configurator page, which has sections for defaults and the various vendor platforms.
  3. To add a section for a platform, model, or serial number, click Additional SN/Platform/Model. To delete a section for a platform, model, or serial number, click Delete SN/Platform/Model. All sections (the ones that come preloaded and the ones you add) start with all of the possible keys for the ztp.json file. To improve visibility and readability, you can toggle to show only the fields that have been configured and hide the ones without data.
  4. Enter the relevant values for defaults, platforms, models, and serial numbers, as applicable, then click Save. See examples for various vendor platforms in the following sections.
