Introduction

You can use templates to set and deploy firewall policies and Quality of Service (QoS) profiles for sites in your SD-WAN service.

Modify and deploy templates in bulk

  1. Sign in to My Account and select ActiveCore from the Manage Services menu.

  2. Select Service Configuration.

  3. Select Manage from the menu of a template you want to modify.

  4. Select Manage profile from the menu of the profile you want to modify. Make modifications and select I understand, continue.



    Note: QoS is currently limited to one configuration for all sites and all VPNs. If you have multiple templates deployed to multiple groups of sites in your network, and a QoS setting is changed, the update will be applied to all sites and templates on the network.

  5. The QoS queue has 2-, 4- and 6-queue options available for you to assign your traffic. You can customize the names and sizes of your queues. Use the dropdown or select Add DSCP Markings to manage your Differentiated Services Code Point mappings. 

    Note: Profiles changes are service-impacting and should be executed in your preferred maintenance window.

    • 2-queue options:

      • Queue 1 - Real Time

      • Queue 2 - Bulk Data

    • 4-queue options:

      • Queue 1 - Real Time

      • Queue 2 - Critical Data

      • Queue 3 - Important Data

      • Queue 4 - Bulk Data

    • 6-queue options:

      • Queue 1 - Real Time

      • Queue 2 - Video

      • Queue 3 - Signal and Control

      • Queue 4 - Critical Data

      • Queue 5 - Important Data

      • Queue 6 - Best Effort

  6. You will receive an Undeployed Changes prompt. Make changes to your firewall policies by selecting View/Edit for a specific policy and then select Deploy changes, Save draft or Delete Draft Template.
