Junos Platform Automation & DevOps (JAUT)
Students who complete this five-day course will be able to automate Junos using DevOps automation tools, protocols, & technologies. Students get first-hand exposure to the tools and languages needed to automate the Junos OS platform in a DevOps setting. The course covers an introduction to Jinja2 templates as well as a thorough explanation of how to use the automation tools Ansible, Salt, and JSNAPy with the Junos operating system (OS). Students learn about Junos commit, operation (op), event, and SNMP on-box scripts in this course. The development of these scripts in SLAX and Python is discussed. Additionally, the course covers YANG, OpenConfig, and Juniper Extension Toolkit (JET), & related APIs. Finally, the course examines using Junos Telemetry Interface (JTI). Through demonstrations & hands-on labs, students will gain experience in automating Junos OS & device operations. This course uses Junos OS Release 21.3R1, Ansible 2.11, Salt 3004, & JSNAPy 1.3.6.
