This guide goes over the specifics of creating and managing AppWans in the web console. AppWans are like a policy that defines which endpoints can access which services. To use an AppWAN you will need at least one of each! You can go back to one of the previous articles about creating and managing Endpoints or Services if necessary.

Create Your AppWAN

To create your AppWAN, go to Network Settings → Manage AppWANs. Click the blue plus-sign in the upper right corner to create a new AppWAN. manage_appwans_page_ziti.png

The 'Create a New AppWAN' screen will have fields for a name and both service and endpoint attributes to be filled in. Similarly to when you created your Service or Endpoint, you can select attributes from the list or create new ones. A preview will appear on the right-hand portion of the screen which shows your services and endpoints that are associated with the attributes you've selected. 


For you AppWAN to function properly, your Edge Router must be provisioned. You can check this status on the Manage Edge Routers page, under the 'Type' column. You will see 'Provisioned', 'Provisioning', 'New', or 'Deleting' in that column. Provisioning can take a few minutes but once that has completed, your endpoints, and services, AppWANs, etc., should function as expected.

Manage Your AppWAN

To manage your existing AppWAN, navigate to Manage AppWANs. You can click on an AppWAN row to edit it or use the ellipsis menu at the end of each row to take actions on the individual AppWAN. Use the select bubbles in the first column of the table to select multiple services for bulk delete.
