Adding and Configuring Sites by Importing a JSON File

Before you begin, ensure that the JSON file contains all the parameters required for each site that you want to add or configure.


We recommend that you create the JSON file by referring to the sample JSON file provided by CSO. Refer to Step 3 of the procedure for downloading and modifying the sample JSON file.

You can add and configure one or more sites in CSO by uploading a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) file that contains the parameters for adding and configuring the sites.

To add and configure multiple sites by uploading a JSON file:

  1. Click Resources > Site Management.

    The Sites page appears.

  2. Click More and select Import Sites.

    The Import Sites page appears.

  3. (Optional) Download a sample JSON file by clicking the Download Sample JSON link. Edit the parameters based on your requirements and save the file.
  4. Click Browse and navigate to the directory that contains the JSON file.
  5. Select the file and click Open.
  6. Click Import.

    A message is displayed indicating that the file is imported to CSO. After the file is imported to CSO successfully, you are returned to the Sites page, where you can view the newly added sites:

    • If you enabled automatic activation for the sites, CSO activates the sites.

      If you selected a service while adding the sites, then CSO provisions the sites and the status of the sites changes to PROVISIONED. If you did not select a service, then the status of the sites changes to MANAGED. You can edit the sites to add the service. After you add the service, CSO applies the service provisioning configuration and the sites are provisioned.

    • If you did not enable automatic activation, CSO sets the status of the sites to CONFIGURED. You must manually activate the sites after which CSO provisions the sites. See Activate a Device or Activating Dual CPE Devices (Device Redundancy).

After the sites are activated and provisioned, you can install certificates and create policies for the sites. See the Managing Policies, Profiles, and Proxies section in this guide for details.
