Napalm Common Parameters

Napalm Parameters

  • Driver Which Napalm driver to use when connecting to the device.
  • Use driver from device If set to True, the driver defined at device level (napalm_driver inventory property of the device) is used, otherwise the driver defined at service level (Driver property of the service) is used.
  • Optional arguments Napalm supports a number of optional arguments that are documented here.

Connection Parameters

  • Credentials: Select between:

    • Device Credentials - eNMS will select the most appropriate credential object for each device. If there are multiple credentials available, eNMS will use the Type of Credential and Priority properties as a tie breaker.
    • User Credentials - Use the user's currently logged in credentials to access the device.
    • Custom Credentials - The user provides the credentials below:
  • Custom Username - User provided username.

  • Custom Password - User provided password.

  • Start New Connection: before the service runs, the current cached connection is discarded and a new one is started.

  • Connection Name: If changed to something other than default, the connection will be cached as a separate connection to that same device. This allows for multiple simultaneous "named" connections to a single device, as in this example:

  • Close Connection: once the service is done running, the current connection will be closed.
