Devices Overview

You can manage the devices in your network from the Devices (Configuration > Devices) page. Paragon Automation supports Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP), which you can use to provision the device while onboarding the device. For information about ZTP, see Zero-Touch Provisioning Overview.

You can use Paragon Automation to manage both Juniper Networks devices and third-party devices (for example, Cisco IOS XR devices). A managed device refers to a device that the base component of Paragon Automation can discover in a network, and therefore can configure or monitor. An unmanaged device refers to a device that cannot be discovered, configured, or monitored by the base component of Paragon Automation.

Table 1 lists the tasks that you can perform on the Juniper Networks and Cisco IOS-XR devices in this release.
