New Features

(CFR denotes customer requested)

VLAN Metadata

CFR-114: Customizable metadata fields are now available to hold VLAN-specific information such as Location, Client, Firewall, Gateway, and more.  

These fields can be enabled and disabled in the VLAN Admin section of ProVision, and viewed / edited under "Edit VLAN" in the VLAN Tab. 

Access VLAN Metadata Fields by selecting "Metadata Fields" from the VLAN Admin navigation dropdown in the Admin section of ProVision:

  • To enable a new field, type the desired field name in an empty text input box under "Field Display Name", and select the check box next to the new name. Then, click "Save" to save your changes. Field display names may be edited at any time by simply typing the desired change into the "Field Display Name" box and saving your changes. 
  • Once enabled, a metadata field displays for all enabled VLANs. 
  • To disable a metadata field, deselect the check box next to the Field Display Name and click "Save". Any data that exists under a disabled field is retained, and will reappear once the field is re-enabled. 

View and update VLAN Metadata from the "Edit VLAN" module from the VLAN Tab:

From the VLAN Tab, expand the desired domain on the left sidebar. Click on the desired VLAN, and select "Edit".

In the "Edit VLAN" module, the enabled Metadata fields will be visible. Type in the metadata information for the selected VLAN, and click "Save".
