When conflict detection is enabled, Cisco Defense Orchestrator (Defense Orchestrator) polls the device it manages ever 10 minutes to determine if a change has been made to the device's configuration outside of Defense Orchestrator. If Defense Orchestrator detects that a change was made, it marks the configuration status for the device Conflict Detected. Changes made to a device outside of Defense Orchestrator are called "out-of-band" changes.
Note: When the FirePOWER policy is managed by Defense Orchestrator, users cannot make out-of-band changes. Any changes made are overridden by Defense Orchestrator.
