Importing IPsec VPNs

Juniper Security Director Cloud lets you import your existing large and complex VPN configurations into the portal. You do not have to recreate the same VPN environment to allow Juniper Security Director Cloud to manage it. During the VPN import operation, all VPN-related objects are also imported along with the VPN.

When you import a VPN, Juniper Security Director Cloud adds a new VPN to the VPN list with the name as ImportVPN_<number>.

At any point of the import workflow, you can choose to exit. All your settings and progress are discarded.

  1. Select SRX > IPsec VPN > IPsec VPNs.

    The IPsec VPNs page opens.

  2. Click Import.

    The Import VPNs page opens.

  3. Select the devices to import the VPNs.

    You can select one or more devices from which the VPN configuration must be imported. The filter option enables you to perform a free-text search on the device name.

    Ensure that you select all the devices, otherwise the network topology discovery might vary and the import of the VPN configuration might treat other devices as extranet devices.


    Hover your mouse cursor over Supported/unsupported items. The displayed list gives you an idea about the VPN types and settings that Juniper Security Director Cloud supports, along with the settings that are not supported. Juniper Security Director Cloud displays the other settings that it does not support, but you can modify the features only using CLI.

  4. Click Next.

    The list of VPNs to be imported is displayed.

  5. Click Finish.

    A Job Status page opens displaying the details of the Import VPN job, such as the number of VPNs, the number of devices in each VPN, and the time stamp.

  6. Click OK.

The imported VPNs are displayed on the IPsec VPN page and the corresponding VPN profiles are listed on the VPN Profiles page.
