Basic Workflow for Configuring Cisco DNA Assurance
Before you begin using the Assurance application, you must configure Assurance. This procedure provides the basic workflow.
Discover devices (routers, switches, Cisco WLCs, and access points).
Make sure that the devices appear in the device Inventory.
Design your network hierarchy. Configure the location of the device, such as area, site, building, and floor.
Provision your network. Add devices to the sites.
If you are adding APs, we recommend that you assign and position them on a floor map.
Configure and apply Telemetry profile to network devices.
If your network uses Cisco ISE for user authentication, you can configure Assurance for Cisco ISE integration. This will allow you to see more information about wired clients, such as the username and operating system, inAssurance.
Enable Device Controllability. Device Controllability is enabled by default. Device Controllability automatically configures discovered devices with SNMP trap servers, NetFlow, Syslog, and NETCONF.
For information about Device Controllability, see the Cisco Digital Network Architecture Center Administrator Guide.
