Build

Apstra generates a blueprint that includes all required configurations.
  • I need to pull in my IP addresses from my IPAM system and use the device models in my inventory.

  • I need to pull in my IP addresses from a CSV file in our common repository and use open-networking switches only.

  • I need to specify my IP addresses individually and specify the rules governing how my devices will be cabled.

  • I need to pull in my IP addresses from a CSV file in our common repository and use open-networking switches only.

  • I need to specify my IP addresses individually and specify the rules governing how my devices will be cabled.
