Navigating the Cisco Cloud APIC GUI
After you install Cisco Cloud APIC, you can use it for extending Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) policy to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure public cloud. You do so through the Cisco Cloud APIC GUI.
In the Cisco Cloud APIC GUI, you can create a tenant, configure application profiles, endpoint groups (EPGs), contracts, filters, and VRFs. You can also view Cisco Cloud APIC topology, configurations, and resources.
You perform configuration steps with the. Intent feature. For instructions on using the Intent feature, see the section Configuring Cisco Cloud APIC Components. Also see the section "Understanding the Cisco Cloud APIC GUI Icons" in the Cisco Cloud APIC User Guide.
The steps for performing basic tasks in Cisco Cloud APIC differ from the steps in regular Cisco APIC. However, the functions of the tenant, application profile, and other elements of Cisco APIC are the same. For more information, see the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure Fundamentals Guide on Cisco.com.
You view configurations and other information with the left navigation pane. You can choose Dashboard (the default view), Topology, Application Management, Cloud Resources, Operations, Infrastructure, and Administrative.
For information abut the icons, see the section "Understanding the Cisco Cloud APIC GUI Icons" in the Cisco Cisco Cloud APIC User Guide on Cisco.com.
