Create and Import an ASR or ISR Model

A Cisco ISO model is a copy of the running configuration file of a Cisco IOS device that you have onboarded to CDO. You can download the Cisco IOS device configuration to a text file and import it as an IOS model to another tenant that you manage.

Download ASR or ISR Configuration  

  1. On the CDO navigation bar, click Devices & Services
  2. Select an IOS device and in the Management on the left pane, click Configuration.
  3. Click Download to download the device configuration to your local computer.

Import ASR or ISR Configuration 

  1. Navigate to the Devices & Services page.
  2. Click the blue plus (blue_cross_button.png) button to import the configuration.
  3. Click on Import a config file without a device.
  4. Select the Device Type as ASR or ISR.
  5. Click Browse and select the configuration file (text format) to upload.
  6. Once the configuration is verified, you're prompted to label the device or service. See Labels and Label Groups for more information. 
  7. After labeling your model device, 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.
