Managing SNMPv3 Trap Configuration

Starting in Junos Space Platform Release 24.1R1 onward, you can push the SNMPv3 trap configuration to the devices from the Junos Space Platform GUI. The Junos Space Network Management Platform fetches the SNMPv3 trap configuration from the OpenNMS server using the trapd-configuration.xml file.


You must update the trapd-configuration.xml file in the OpenNMS server before modifying the SNMPv3 configuration.

When a device is discovered using SNMPv3, Junos Space Platform sends the latest SNMPv3 trap configuration, which is the first item in the trapd-configuration.xml file, to the newly-discovered device. Any modification to the SNMPv3 trap configuration deploys the latest configuration onto the devices.

The SNMPv3 trap configuration includes the username, security level, and authentication and privacy settings. Although you can configure multiple users, only the last modified user configuration is deployed onto the devices.

To modify the SNMPv3 trap configuration on the Junos Space Platform:

  1. On the Junos Space Platform UI, select Network Monitoring > SNMPv3 Trap Configuration.

    The SNMPv3 Trap Configuration page appears.

    • The information available in the SNMPv3 Trap Configuration page is by default and cannot be edited. These details are from SNMPv3 configuration from OpenNMS server.

    • You must carryout any new changes in the SNMPv3 configuration in the OpenNMS server.

  2. To submit the changes, click OK. Alternatively, to discard the changes and close the page, click Cancel.
