Namespace Manager


The Namespace Manager provides a GUI for managing the system namespace known as "config," which contains the set of Cisco standardized events, such as com.cisco.cns.mgmt.config.load, etc. By default, each event defines a mapping to itself for both the publish and subscribe mapping.

If you are using the Cisco Configuration Engine Software Development Kit API Reference and Programmer Guide to develop your own application, you are free to redefine the map according to your application needs. Additional application-specific namespace values can be defined by means of the Cisco Configuration Engine SDK.


Note Cisco Configuration Engine supports multiple namespaces and their respective mappings by means of the Cisco Configuration Engine GUI.


The system namespace is guaranteed to return a mapping even for undefined events; in which case, the input map is returned as the output map. This is a requirement for supporting future devices which might depend on new events that are not currently defined.

To access Namespace management tasks, log into the system (see "Logging In" section on page 2-1). Then, from the Home page, click the Tools tab. The Tools page appears.

From the Tools page, click Namespace Mgr. The Namespace Management page appears showing:

Step 3 Use the drop-down arrow to select the NSM Mode.

Algorithmic - Mapped events qualified with group name or device name are returned from NSM. This is the preferred mode for all users. It allows you to provision the selected group(s) of device(s).

Non-Algorithmic - Mapped events are returned from NSM without group name or device name. You are forced to provision all device(s).

Step 4 Enter a valid Event Mapping.

For example: cisco.mgmt.cns.exec.reload

Step 5 To define separate parameters for Subscriber Mapping and Publisher Mapping, click Advanced.

The advanced event information page appears (see Figure 7-3).
