This guide goes over the specifics of creating and managing a NetFoundry network using the web console.  

Create a Network

The steps for creating a Network are straightforward. Go to Network Settings  Manage Networks to get the process started. Click the blue plus-sign in the upper right corner to create a new network. 'Provisioned' means your network was successfully completed, and this typically occurs in less than twenty minutes. 


On the 'Create a New Network' screen, you'll find a field for Network Name, and as always, a unique name is needed to create a Network. To create a Network, give your network a name. Then click 'Create my Network' to finish the process. The network can be recreated with the backup file of YML or JSON file. 


 Your new network will show a grey spinning globe and a status of 'Provisioning' while it is being created. In a few minutes, the globe will turn green and the status will change to 'Provisioned'. After that, you are able to create your other Network components. 


Manage Your Network 

To manage your existing Network, navigate to Manage Networks. Click on a network row to edit it. Use the ellipsis menu at the end of each row to take actions on an individual network. Use the select bubbles in the first column of the table to select multiple networks for bulk delete.

Firewall Info option helps to avoid firewall conflicts by whitelisting the mentioned outbound attributes.

Notification enables the creation of alarms for specific network events by creating a notification subscription. Just select an event type, the network it applies to, and where you would like to receive notifications.

Delete option allows you to delete a network, not edit it.

Download enables to take backup of the network either in JSON or YAML file type and it can be used to recreate the network. 


Network Dashboard

For Network Overview and Component information, navigate to the Dashboard by Selecting the Globe ("Network Settings") at the upper left of the Console.  When the Management buttons appear, select the "Network Dashboard" button.  This will give you an overview of your currently selected network.  Select Component boxes or Navigation buttons for specific component management. Network utilization time-frames and active endpoints can be customized by selecting the desired time box.
