IPAM Parameters - Overview

IPAM Lists Management is access from the Admin section of ProVision, under the IPAM Admin tab. Through this area, admin users can update IPAM tags, regions, IPv4 subnets, and IPv6 subnets. 

Add / Edit IPAM Tags

When you are applying properties to IP blocks, you have the option to edit tags. IPAM Tags are used in a number of areas in ProVision and can be added or edited from this screen. 

To add a new IPAM tag, click on "Add Tag" at the top of the Edit IPAM Tags page. 

Then, type in the desired name value for the new tag, and hit "Add Tag". 

To edit a tag, simply type your changes in to the text box with the tag name. Tags with unsaved changes will be highlighted until saved. 

To delete a tag, click on the red "delete" symbol to the right of the tag name. 

When complete, be sure to click on the "Save" button to save your changes. 

Add / Edit Regions

If enabled, Regions can function as a way to further define your network segments (regional tie-downs, etc.). This gives you flexibility for allocations and assignments beyond simply using Tags. Regions are used by the IPAM Gadget and the IPAM Manage UI.

The Regions display includes fields for both Value and Display. 'Display' is the region name that will show in the IPAM Gadget and IPAM Manage screens, whereas 'Value' is the value that will be written to the database, used for API calls, and is also used for some filter selectors. 

To add a new Region item, type in a new Value and Name into the empty fields at the bottom of the list. 

Then, click "Add Element.

The new region entry will be added to the bottom of the region list. From here, you can manually set the entry's position in the list by clicking the up/down arrows to the left of the entry. 

You may also automatically sort into alphabetical order by clicking the "Reset Order to Alphanumeric" link at the top of the page.

 

To edit a region, simply type your changes in to the text box with the region name. Then, click on the "Update" Button. 

To delete a region, click on the red "delete" symbol to the right of the region name. 

Add / Edit IPv4 / IPv6 Subnet Dropdowns

When assigning blocks using the "Smart Assign" function in the IPAM Gadget, the user has an option to assign an IP resource by allocation size. ProVision supports assignments down to a single host level (/32 for IPv4, /128 for IPv6).

Note on Editing the Subnet Dropdown

Keep in mind that this is a global edit. If the values in the dropdown are changed, it will affect ALL users of the ProVision application

To add a new Subnet item, click on "Add Item" at the top of the Edit List: IPv4 or IPv6 Subnets page. 

Then, type in the desired Value and Display value for the Subnet, and hit "Add Item". 

After adding a new item, it will show at the bottom of the list highlighted in yellow. Hit "Save" to save your changes. 

To edit a subnet, simply type your changes in to the text box. Entries with unsaved changes will be highlighted until saved. 

After adding or editing a subnet, you may wish to clean up the list order by hitting "Sort List Numerically" at the top of the page to reset the list order including the new entry. 

To delete a subnet, click on the red "delete" symbol to the right of the subnet entry. 

 

When complete, be sure to click on the "Save" button to save your changes.
