Config Fetching

Fetching is the process of retrieving of device configuration. Performed by config check of box discovery. According to the Config Policy setting in Managed Object Profile there are two method possible:

  • Script
  • Download from external storage

Fetching via script

get_config script for target platform is necessary. Usually it is the second script besides get_version to implement.

Fetching from external storage

Discovery can download configuration from External Storage. Supposed that configuration supplied to storage via external process: device uploads config by itself or some third-party system (like RANCID), performs all dirty work for us. Fetching from external storage is the integrated feature of Discovery and provided out-of-the box.
