Add a Predefined Rule

Juniper has created a set of predefined rules that you can use to gather information from various Juniper components and the networks they reside in. You can add these rules to Paragon Insights at any time. After installation, many default predefined rules appear in the Rules page. Predefined rules cannot be changed or removed; however, you can clone any rule (predefined or user defined) simply by clicking the CLONE button on the upper-right part of the rule definition. A cloned rule goes to the external topic and can be re-configured at will.

To upload additional predefined rules to Paragon Insights :

  1. Using a browser, go to and download the pre-defined rule file to your system.
  2. In the Paragon Insights GUI, click the Configuration > Rules icon in the Paragon Automation menu.
  3. Click the ↑ Upload Rule Filesbutton.
  4. Click the Choose Files button.
  5. Navigate to the rule file and click Open.
  6. Select one of the following options:


    Upload the file and save the rule within the defined topic area but do not deploy the updated configuration. You can use this option when, for example, you are making several changes and want to deploy all your updates at the same time.

    Upload & Deploy

    Upload the file, save the rule within the defined topic area, and immediately deploy the configuration.
