Cisco Defense Orchestrator

Conflict Detection

When conflict detection is enabled, Cisco Defense Orchestrator (CDO polls the device it manages every 10 minutes to determine if a change has been made to the device's configuration outside of CDO. If CDO detects that a change was made, it marks the configuration status for the device Conflict Detected. Changes made to a device outside of CDO are called "out-of-band" changes.

Enable Conflict Detection

Enabling conflict detection alerts you to instances where changes have been made to a device outside of Defense Orchestrator.

  1. Open the Devices & Services page.
  2. Select the device or devices for which you want to enable conflict detection. 
  3. In the Conflict Detection box at the right of the device table, select Enabled from the list.
