Onboard a Live ASA Device

A "live" ASA device is an ASA firewall running on a physical appliance or as a virtual machine. Live devices are different than ASA models.  ASA models are a copy of the running configuration of an ASA. Onboading models is useful when you want to analyze the running configuration of an ASA without onboarding it. 

  1. Navigate to the Devices & Services page.
  2. Click Onboard.
  3. Click Add an ASA device.
  4. Give the device a name.
  5. Enter the location (IP address or URL) of the device or service. The default port is 443.

Note: Download and review the TLS certificate before proceeding. When accepted, it will be trusted by the SDC.

  1. Once the location of the device or service is verified, you're prompted to enter the credentials to the device.
  2. Once the credentials are verified, you're prompted to label the device or service. See Labels and Label Groups for more information.
  3. After labeling your device or service, you can view it in the Devices & Services list.

Note: Depending on the size of the configuration and the number of other devices or services, it may take some time for the configuration to be analyzed.
