Itential Pre-Built Automations


Itential provides a number of pre-built automations that customers can leverage to rapidly adopt network automation for specific use cases. These automations are packaged and self-contained, and include all the relevant documentations, files, scripts, dependencies, and logical components that are needed to execute the automation such as workflows, forms, Golden Configuration tree, command templates and more. With Itential’s pre-built automations, organizations can start fast, onboard automation principles quickly and stay fast, mitigating manual management and reducing errors.

Automation
Software Upgrade – Cisco IOS

This software upgrade automation can be used to do a full upgrade of your Cisco IOS devices connected through either Ansible or NSO. It provides preconfigured and fully customizable network readiness checks, device pre- & post-checks and connectivity tests based on industry practices. A backup of the device config will be taken before the upgrade so the initial state of the device can be restored at any time.

Software Upgrade – Cisco IOS XR

This software upgrade automation can be used to do a full upgrade of your Cisco IOS XR devices connected through either Ansible or NSO. It provides preconfigured and fully customizable network readiness checks, device pre- & post-checks and connectivity tests based on industry practices. A backup of the device config will be taken before the upgrade so the initial state of the device can be restored at any time.

Automation
Configuration Compliance & Remediation

The Configuration Compliance and Remediation automation allows network engineers to run scheduled compliance reports to check the compliance of devices against a specified Golden Configuration. If the compliance score has fallen under a customizable value for any given device, Itential Automation Platform will automatically take a backup of this device and try to automatically remediate the configuration back to the specified state. A report of all changes is shown to a network engineer.

Automation
SD-WAN Branch Management – Meraki

This automation consists of a series of modular workflows that creates a network branch for a given organization and claims one or many device access points to that network. The automation also includes operational process integrations for notification &change management systems. Lastly, the pre-built automation accounts for manual verification steps and fallout handling in case of errors.

Automation
ASA Firewall Object Group Update

This Itential pre-built automates the updating process of group objects in Cisco ASA Firewall devices. The automation is designed to create and/or update an existing group object to add and remove hosts on physical and virtual Cisco ASA devices via Ansible.

Automation
AWS VPC Creation

This pre-built automation enables users of the Itential Automation Platform to leverage our integration to AWS to create a virtual private cloud. The automation allows users to select the desired size of the VPC by specifying the CIDR block size, as well as specify a list of public and private subnets to create within the VPC. All this is achieved without a user having to log in to AWS.

L2/L3 VPN Provisioning

Users can manage L2 VPN (Layer 2 Virtual Private Network) and L3 VPN (Layer 3 Virtual Private Network) services by utilizing abstracted multi-vendor service models that represent the minimum L2 VPN and L3 VPN service configurations. The service package runs on the Cisco NSO platform and is managed from the Itential Automation Platform user interface. This allows you automate the creation of L2/L3 VPNs across a device agnostic network.

Controller/Orchestration
Automation
Cisco NSO Device On-Boarding

The Cisco NSO Device Onboarding automation allows a user to onboard devices into an NSO instance. This automation can add a device into the NSO database, perform a fetch on the device SSH keys (if applicable) and execute a sync-from on the device being onboarded.

Controller/Orchestration
Automation
Service Provisioning

The service provisioning automation demonstrates an end-to-end usage of the Service Management workflow tasks in Itential Automation Platform (IAP). This enables you to learn how to leverage network intelligent tasks provided by the platform to create service provisioning automations built on best practices.

Controller/Orchestration
Automation
Device File Transfer

Users can automate file transfer to upgrade any Cisco device (IOS/XR/NX) on the network from a remote file server. This optimizes software upgrade procedures by allowing engineers to execute preparation steps autonomously, thereby reducing the lead window.

Utilities
Automation
Device Pre-Check & Post-Check Execution

Users can select a live device/group of devices from their inventory of NSO or Ansible devices to execute commands to check the current configuration and establish rules against these commands to determine the state of the device(s). This allows you to automate and evaluate pre and post checks against network devices, thereby eliminating the need to manually perform these activities during the maintenance window that result in human errors.

NetOps
Telemetry/Analytics
Automation
SNMP Management

User can agnostically manage SNMP community strings across multiple device types by executing the automation against their network devices that are managed by Ansible. Operations teams can keep their finger on the pulse by automating access policies to gain insights into all their managed devices and applications on the network.
