Configuration > Overlays & Security > Discovery > Preconfiguration
Use this page to prepopulate flat data files that are matched with appliances as you add them to your network.
The information in the files is a combination of items found in the Appliance Configuration Wizard, along with site-specific information such as BGP, OSPF, IP SLA rules, VRRP, interfaces, and addressing.
You can create a new file or clone (and rename) an existing one. Make any changes with the built-in editor.
After the appliance is discovered and approved, software upgrade and configuration push are done automatically.
