Networks created on NetFoundry teams and growth accounts have the feature of " auto-provisioning" the network and the NetFoundry hosted fabric routers based on the detail given in step 4 and step 5.
Click on the rotating globe top left corner, this will take you to the networks tab where you can see a network being auto provisioned. The name of the network is picked up from the "org name" provided in step 5.
Two NF hosted fabric routers are automatically being provisioned with the names " Auto NF Hosted Edge Router 1 and Auto NF Hosted Edge Router 2" The location for these routers are selected from the inputs given in step 4
The edge router policy is automatically created after the hosted edge routers are provisioned. The policy allows "all" device endpoints to be able to connect to the two fabric routers provisioned.
