srx web application where to start

‎07-18-2016 08:44 AM

Hi all

 

I have this idea but I am not sure where to start. I would like a webapp that takes the following: source IP, dest IP, applications, and scheduled expirary date and generate the FW commands for me. 

 

This would require the app the talk to my SRX, get the the zones, and get teh applications and set the scheduler, and finally generate the commands out as a text for the operator to apply.

 

I know the srx has a web page for this already but for whatever reason at our place our SRX doesn't have the webpage. We always ssh in and manipulate via cmd line. And I am not sure where to start to develope such a tool. 

 

Any advice/pointers you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Are you looking for Jweb to configure security policies and other stuff for you on the SRX ?

Hi

 

Sounds like you want to develop an automation script! The best way to start IMHO is to read the book "Automating Junos Administration" (recently published)

http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920041498.do

 

I recommend starting with developing a CLI script. Once it works, you can build some sort of web front-end to it. However this will not be a page on SRX, but on a separate server (most probably Linux machine).

 

P.S. I don't know what existing page are you referring to.

Hi pk

 

I am refering to the default web interface to manage SRX, for whatever reason our SRX are currently managed via cmd line. 

 

thanks for the suggestion, I think starting with CLI then a webfront end will be a good idea.
