Adding a Network Device

Review the supported software versions, credentials, and required commands for your network devices. For more information, see Supported Adapters.

To add a network device to JSA Risk Manager, use Configuration Source Management.

  1. On the navigation menu, click Admin to open the admin tab :
  2. On the Admin navigation menu, click Plug-ins or Apps.
    • In JSA 7.3.0 or earlier, click Plug-ins.

    • In JSA 7.3.1, click Apps.

  3. On the Risk Manager pane, click Configuration Source Management.
  4. On the navigation menu, click Credentials.
  5. On the Network Groups pane, click Add a new network group.
    1. Type a name for the network group, and click OK.

    2. Type the IP address of your device, and click Add.

      You can type an IP address, a range of IP addresses, a CIDR subnet, or a wildcard.

      For example, use the following format for a wildcard, type 10.1.*.*

      For example, use the following format for a CIDR, type


      Do not replicate device addresses that exist in other network groups in Configuration Source Management.

    3. Ensure that the addresses that you add are displayed in the Network address box beside the Add address box.

    4. Repeat the previous two steps for each IP address that you want to add.

  6. On the Credentials pane, click Add a new credential set.
    1. Type a name for the credential set, and click OK.

    2. Select the name of the credential set that you create and enter values for the parameters.

      The following table describes the parameters.

      Table 1: Parameter Options for Credentials




      A valid user name to log in to the adapter.

      For adapters, the user name and password that you provide requires access to several files, such as the following files:






      The password for the device.

      Enable Password

      The password for second-level authentication.

      This password is required when the credentials prompt you for user credentials that are required for expert mode access level.

      SNMP Get Community


      SNMPv3 Authentication Username


      SNMPv3 Authentication Password


      SNMPv3 Privacy Password


      The protocol that is used to decrypt SNMPv3 traps.


      If your network device meets one of the following conditions, you must configure protocols in Configuration Source Management:

      • Your device uses a non-standard port for the communication protocol.

      • You want to configure the protocol that JSA Risk Manager uses to communicate with specific IP addresses.

      For more information about configuring sources, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Risk Manager User Guide.

  7. On the navigation menu, add a single device or multiple devices.
    • To add one network device, click Add Device.

    • To add multiple IP addresses for network devices, click Discover Devices.

  8. Enter the IP address for the device, select the adapter type, and then click Add.

    If the device is not backed up, a blue question mark appears beside the adapter.

  9. To backup the device that you add to the device list, select the device, and then click Backup.
  10. Repeat these steps for every network device that you want to add to the device list.

After you add all of the required devices, you can configure protocols. For more information, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Risk Manager User Guide.
