Add Labels

A label references a group of devices. You use labels to identify devices of the same type or role and reference them in a device profile.

For example, you can tag all provider edge devices with the label PE. Then, within a device profile, you can define that BGP sessions or MPLS LSPs should be established with any other device with the same label. When a provider edge device is onboarded using this profile, it gets tagged with label PE and automatically configured to peer with all the other devices also tagged with the label PE. At the same time, all these other devices also get configured to peer with this new device.

You associate a label with a network implementation plan.

To add a label:
  1. Navigate to Inventory > Devices > Device and interface Profiles.

    The Device and Interface Profiles page appears.

  2. Click Add > Labels.
    The Create Labels page appears.
  3. Enter values by referring to Table 1.
  4. Click OK.
    The label is created and listed on the Device and Interface Profiles page.

Field Description
Plan Name

Enter a name for the network implementation plan with which the label is associated.

The name can contain alphanumeric characters and some special characters [hyphen (-) and period (.)] and cannot exceed 64 characters.


Enter one or more labels to be associated with the network implementation plan.

A label is used to reference a group of devices (instead of referencing individual devices) in a profile. For example, in a device profile, you can enter the device label to specify devices to be included in a BGP peer group instead of entering IP addresses of individual devices. All devices that are associated with the label become part of the same BGP peer group.

The name of a label can contain alphanumeric characters and some special characters [hyphen (-), underscore (_), and period (.)] and cannot exceed 64 characters.
