Release Notes for Cisco DNA Center Platform, Release 1.2.8

This document describes the features, limitations, and bugs for the Cisco DNA Center platform, Release 1.2.8.

Overview

Cisco DNA Center provides an extensible platform that Cisco customers and partners can use to create value-added applications that can be built on top of its native capabilities. You can leverage the following Cisco DNA Center platform features to enhance the overall network experience by optimizing end-to-end IT processes, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and developing new value networks:

  • Intent APIs: The Intent APIs are Northbound REST APIs that expose specific capabilities of Cisco DNA Center platform. The Intent APIs provide policy-based abstraction of business intent, allowing you to focus on an outcome to achieve instead of struggling with the mechanisms that implement that outcome. The APIs conform to the REST API architectural style that are simple, extensible, secure to use and support the standard REST methods which includes the GET, POST, PUT and DELETE operations though HTTPS.

  • Integration Flows: Integration capabilities are part of Westbound Interfaces. To meet the need to scale and accelerate operations in modern data centers, IT operators require intelligent, end-to-end workflows built with open APIs. Cisco DNA Center platform provides mechanisms for integrating Cisco DNA Assurance workflows and data with third-party IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions.

  • Multivendor Support: Cisco DNA Center allows customers to manage their non-Cisco devices. Multivendor support comes to Cisco DNA Center through the use of an SDK that can be used to create device packages for third-party devices. A device package enables Cisco DNA Center to communicate to third-party devices by mapping Cisco DNA Center features to their southbound protocols.

  • Events and Notifications Services: Supported services are available for Cisco DNA Assurance and Automation (SWIM) events to be captured and forwarded onto third-party applications via a webhook URL.

What's New in Cisco DNA Center Platform, Release 1.2.8

The following are the new features and functionalities for Cisco DNA Center platform, Release 1.2.8.

IP Address Manager Integration

Cisco DNA Center provides support for pool attribute synchronization between itself and supported third party IP Address Manager providers (Infoblox and BlueCat). The following pool attributes can be synchronized:

  • IP pool name

  • DHCP server IP address

  • DNS server IP address

The above IP pool attributes are configured by the user in Cisco DNA Center using the Add IP Pool dialog box. From the Cisco DNA Center home page, choose Design > Network Settings > IP Address Pools. Click Add IP Pool to access the dialog box.

Note the following when synchronizing the above pool attributes between Cisco DNA Center and an IP Address Manager:

  • For a successful Cisco DNA Center to IP Address Manager integration, you need to first configure your supported IP Address Manager provider (Infoblox or BlueCat) or configure your non-supported IP Address Manager provider per the IPAM Integration API specification, before using it with Cisco DNA Center.


    Note

    For information about the IPAM specification, see the IPAM Integration API specification.


  • Cisco DNA Center will synchronize the IP pool name, DHCP server IP address, and DNS server IP address to the external IP Address Manager provider. The Gateway IP address will not be synced.

  • Cisco DNA Center requires a unique IP pool name. Therefore, if the IP pool name already exists in Cisco DNA Center, then the CIDR will be appended to it to make it unique.

  • Cisco DNA Center does not learn any new pool information from the external IP Address Manager providers. Therefore, if an attribute is changed in an external system, it will not be reflected in Cisco DNA Center. The best practice is to make all changes in Cisco DNA Center, once the IP Address Manager integration is set up and in place.

  • Cisco DNA Center will not synchronize options configured on a pool at this time. Cisco DNA Center only uses option 43, and it dynamically sets this option for the DHCP pools.

For information about configuring an IP Address Manager in Cisco DNA Center, see the Cisco Digital Network Architecture Center Administrator Guide. For information about configuring and importing IP address pools in Cisco DNA Center, see the Cisco Digital Network Architecture Center User Guide.

For information about the limitations for this IP Address Manager integration feature, see Limitations and Restrictions.

SDA API Support

Cisco DNA Center platform provides business REST APIs for the following SDA workflows:

  • Adding a border device in an existing SDA Fabric.

  • Removing an existing border device from an existing SDA Fabric.

  • Getting a border device detail from an existing SDA Fabric.


Note

Cisco DNA Center platform provides composite REST APIs called BAPI (business APIs) to carry out complex and composite work flows for the user. These higher level (network) BAPI simplify the end user's tasks by not requiring extensive programming or software development to orchestrate API execution and state maintenance. This release provides the first step towards providing BAPI for SDA customers.


The following prerequisites must be met before executing the SDA business APIs:

  • The device or devices in your network are properly cabled.

  • You have identified the border device or devices in your network.

  • The Fabric is ready to be deployed.

  • The Fabric definition is configured in Cisco DNA Center.

  • The VN definitions are configured in Cisco DNA Center.

    Added a new API to accommodate this change.

  • NFV provisioning detail changed to “Get Device details by IP” and URL has changed from “ /dna/intent/api/v1/nfv-provisioning-detail” to “/dna/intent/api/v1/business/nfv/provisioningDetail”.

    Added a new API to accommodate this change

  • Description changed for Get Device details by IP, Assign Device To Site and Create site.

  • The __runsync has been removed from header parameter for the GET request.

  • Execution status URL has been constructed instead of picking it from the response message.

The following additional changes from the Cisco DNA Center NFV service has been absorbed into the ENFV composite APIs:

  • Device tag name changes.

  • Day 0 configuration changes.

  • Grouping API changes.

  • Bug fixes.

New Client Report File Type

Cisco DNA Center platform supports a new Client report file type. You can now select the Client report file type, Top N Summary. To view this option, click Platform > Developer Toolkit > Data and Reports. In the Client field click Schedule and then select Top N Summary as the file type. As part of theTop N Summary report a new graph is added which displays the details of the top locations by poor client health.

Platform Bundle Enhancements

The following Cisco DNA Center platform bundles have been enhanced for this release:

  • Network Issue Monitor and Enrichment for ITSM (ServiceNow)

  • SWIM Events for ITSM (ServiceNow)

The enhancement is to accommodate users who do not have the Event Management Plug-in in their ServiceNow instance. It provides the capability for ServiceNow to receive Network Event and SWIM Event details in a REST API Endpoint and then create an Incident, Problem or Change ticket, based on the configuration chosen by the user in Cisco DNA Center. For users who have the Event Management Plug-in, the ability to create an Event is also supported in addition to Incident, Problem, or Change Request.

You configure the above bundles for this new capability using the Cisco DNA Center platform GUI and by clicking Platform > Manage > Bundles > Network Issue Monitor and Enrichment for ITSM (ServiceNow) or SWIM Events for ITSM (ServiceNow). Next, click the Enable button to enable the selected bundle. After the bundle becomes enabled, then click the Configure button > Destination to receive events. Refer to the Cisco DNA Center Platform User Guide for information about the new configuration options.

High Availability

As a part of Cisco DNA Center Release 1.2.8, the Cisco DNA Center platform services have been tested and validated to work in cluster with 3 or more nodes. Individual services in the Cisco DNA Center platform package work independently without having to be identified or located in a specific cluster node; in other words, there are no references or dependencies between services with a "local node" (or "localhost") or a specific node.

Cisco DNA Center system resources (such as the database) are provided as "distributed" by Maglev. For the database, there is a database instance running on all the cluster nodes in an ACTIVE-ACTIVE replication mode, which ensures that any data written by one (instance) service, is visible and made aware to the rest of the services in the other cluster nodes.


Note

External access to Cisco DNA Center in a high availability set up of multi-node cluster is always only through a Virtual IP (VIP) gateway, and there is never a need to directly access a specific service or an instance in a node.


For this release, Cisco DNA Center platform only supports single-instances of each of its services. Subsequent Cisco DNA Center platform releases will provide further high availability, distribution, and higher scale by supporting multiple-concurrent instances of its services.

Backup and Restore

Cisco DNA Center platform services are comprised of code base binaries and a persistent database. When you perform a backup using Cisco DNA Center, these services are included in the backup. If you need to restore Cisco DNA Center after a system failure, the Cisco DNA Center platform services, configuration, and meta-data are restored to the state that they were at the time of the backup.

The Cisco DNA Center backup and restore utility satisfies almost all use cases. However, a system restore from the backup will not include enabled and working APIs from the Cisco DNA Center REST API bundle. After restoring from backup, use the Cisco DNA Center platform GUI to disable the Cisco DNA Center REST API bundle and re-enable it again.

Finally, you must redo any changes that were made (for example, activating a bundle, setting up an integration configuration, or scheduling a report) after the backup was completed. There are no transactional check points or roll forward logs that can be used to bring Cisco DNA Center platform back up-to-date to the point when the failure occurred.
