Inspector Setup Preparation

Configure Agent Access

Before starting with the Inspector setup, we will need to configure the Junos device such that a Liongard Agent can access it via SSH and log in with a valid username and password or SSH key.

  1. Create a Liongard Service Account with read-only Admin permissions and either a password or SSH key that can be entered into Liongard for authentication purposes.
  2. Use (or set up) an On-Premises Agent inside the firewall (the recommended approach) or configure the firewall such that the SSH interface can be reached from your Self-Hosted Agent.

Liongard Inspector Setup

In Liongard, navigate to Admin > Inspectors > Inspector Types > Navigate to the Junos Inspector > Select Add System.

Fill in the following information:

  • Environment: Select the Environment this System Inspector should be associated to
  • Friendly Name: Suggested "Junos [Environment Name]"
  • Agent: Select the On-premises Agent installed for this Environment
  • Inspector Version: Latest
  • IP/Hostname: The IP address or hostname (resolvable from the Agent machine) of the Junos device.
  • SSH Port: SSH port reachable from the Agent machine.
  • SSH Username: Username on the Junos device for use by the Inspector.
  • SSH Password or SSH Private Key: The password or SSH key associated with the above Username.
  • SSH Passphrase for Private Key: (IF CONFIGURED) SSH key passphrase, if using a private key with a passphrase.
  • Scheduling: The Inspector will default to run once a day at the time the Inspector is set up. Here you can adjust the schedule

Select Save. The Inspector will now be triggered to run within the minute.
