Frequently Asked Questions

What is Configuration Manager?

Configuration Manager is an application within the Itential Automation Platform that enables networking teams to schedule the backup of device configurations and manage those configurations. Using those configurations, the application can ensure compliance across both traditional and cloud-based networking infrastructure. Configuration Manager provides a simple way to create a configuration standard for both CLI and API managed devices and services.

Does Configuration Manager support detection of configuration drift, compliance validation, and auto remediation?

Yes, compliance reports can be generated manually or scheduled, and if any configuration drift is detected remediation can occur manually or automatically using an automation workflow.

Does Configuration Manager support network device onboarding and lifecycle management, including configuration compliance against Golden Configuration?

Configuration Manager is focused on providing configuration compliance across all network devices and services. Onboarding of devices and lifecycle management are features within the Itential Automation Platform and work in an integrated way to provide full device onboarding and day 0 through day N lifecycle management.

How does Configuration Manager support on-demand and scheduled compliance checks against targeted device groups?

Configuration Manager allows networking teams to run compliance checks manually (on-demand) or to schedule compliance checks on a recurring basis. These compliance checks can be run across any portion of a Golden Configuration tree to support the targeted devices.

How does Configuration Manager support compliance of API-based network devices and cloud services?

The Itential Automation Platform uses APIs to integrate with networking systems or cloud services. The API methods are then made available as tasks, which can be used in Configuration Manager to provide configuration details on a particular network service. These configuration details are presented as a JSON object, which can be compared to a Golden Configuration standard defined for that device or service.

Which network vendors and device types do you support in Configuration Manager?

For CLI-based devices, we have support for a variety of devices from Cisco, Juniper, Arista, F5, A10, and Aruba. Users can add additional device types by leveraging the Extensible Device Support Wizard.

For API-based services, we support any services which make their configuration details available through an API method. This would typically include a vast majority of networking services today.

How many devices do you support in Configuration Manager?

There is no upper limit based on number of devices that can be supported. Any limitations will be based on resource constraints of the hardware that is running the Itential Automation Platform.

Can you support compliance rules for strictly ordered configurations (ACLs, Routes, etc.)?

Itential provides compliance features that support any configuration type, including strictly ordered lists of items. These are typically found in Access Control Lists (ACL), Route filters, or Policy-based routes. These features can be used for both CLI or API (JSON) configurations.

How do you provide compliance reports for different network devices?

Compliance audits and reports can be generated directly in the Configuration manager application for any device. A compliance plan can be defined to select multiple network elements and run compliance audits and reports for them as a group. These plans can be scheduled to run at specific intervals automatically.
