SSH Gateways

The SSH Gateway feature allows you to specify a Gateway device that will be used before accessing the desired device. This is similar to a jumphost or jumpserver configuration. This feature only works with Netmiko services using SSH.

Create a Gateway

From Inventory -> Devices, use the device type drop down to select a device of type Gateway. The Gateway is created and can be used by services in the same way as other device types.


In the case where multiple gateways are needed, a priority mechanism may be used to control the order in which the gateways should be accessed. The highest priority number wins precedence.


Using a Gateway

To force a device to use a Gateway, you may add the device to the Gateway as pictured above, or you may specify the Gateway on the device, depending on the order of creation.
