cv_device

Provision, Reset, or Update CloudVision Portal Devices.

Synopsis

CloudVison Portal Device compares the list of Devices in devices against cvp-facts then adds, resets, or updates them as appropriate. If a device is in cvp_facts but not in devices it will be reset to factory defaults in ZTP mode If a device is in devices but not in cvp_facts it will be provisioned If a device is in both devices and cvp_facts its configlets and imageBundles will be compared and updated with the version in devices if the two are different. Warning - reset means devices will be erased and will run full ZTP process. Use this function with caution !
