Create a Preprovision Profile

Preprovision profiles contain a predefined set of policies that Juniper Security Director Cloud deploys on devices while onboarding.

After you adopt a physical device, Juniper Security Director Cloud triggers the discovery process and deploys minimal configuration to the device and changes the status of the device to In Sync. Then Juniper Security Director Cloud verifies if a preprovision profile is mapped to the device and deploys the corresponding policies on the device.

You can select only devices with Discovery Not Initiated as the Management Status to include in the preprovisioned profile.

  1. Click SRX > Device Management > Devices.

    The Devices page opens.

  2. Click the Preprovision Profiles tab.
  3. Click Preprovision Devices.

    The Preprovision Devices page opens.

  5. In the Devices tab, select the devices and device groups to include in the preprovisioned profile.
  6. Click the Configuration Templates tab.
