How best to automate interface creation on VSX?

Jump to solution

I'm trying to automate creation of layer 3 interfaces for VLANs on a bond on VSX. From what I could tell this doesn't seem to be a feature within the web API. I need to integrate this into a larger script or ansible playbook. Has anyone done this with the web API or ansible? Examples would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tony

At this point in time, you have to script automatic provisioning with VSX provisioning tool listed above. With upcoming Gaia Dynamic CLI and Gaia API (stay tuned or join EA), it will be possible to add Rest API calls for that tool that would be more automation friendly.

Hi

Have you already investigated and ruled out the VSX Provisioning Tool ( sk100645 ) ?

Valeri,

I looked into the provisioning tool a bit but the end goal is a single script that builds a VLAN across multiple devices from different vendors. It would be preferable to do an API call with curl or make an ansible role with playbooks for each device type. I did reach out to Alexander about the API. Thank you for the info!
