Managing any modern network architecture is difficult as our infrastructure increases in size and complexity. In this course, Automating Cisco DNA Center Operations Using APIs, you will learn foundational knowledge surrounding the wide variety of DNA Center APIs available. First, you will learn how to create and manage "sites" in the DNA center inventory, which contain both organizational device groupings and devices themselves. Next, you will discover how to update device configurations at scale using the DNA center template programmer. This will simplify change management and daily network operations. Finally, you will explore how to perform a variety of miscellaneous actions, such as troubleshooting the network using data collection techniques, tracing network paths, and monitoring your enterprise network performance via notification webhooks.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Nick Russo and welcome to my automating Cisco D N a. Center operations using AP Eyes course with the fundamentals of software development and network program ability behind you. Weaken dig deeper into Cisco Digital Network Architecture or D N A Center. By exploring, it's a P I. This course covers four main topic areas. Managing the DNA center inventory, using the site architecture, creating rendering and deploying configuration templates, troubleshooting network problems at scale and utilizing d n a. Center assurance for health monitoring. After completing this course, you'll be able to programmatically, configure, operate and monitor your network using DNA Center. Before beginning this course, I'd recommend the following prerequisite courses. These three courses provide the foundation off software development and program ability skills that are extended in this course. The content around get version control, Cisco Products and General A P eyes will be especially helpful. I'm assuming you already have a strong background in python programming. This fourth course follows an enterprise scenario from day zero today n provisioning new routers, configuring them for daily operations, then monitoring them with streaming telemetry. I think this will provide useful context before digging into DNA center. I hope you'll join me on this journey toe. Learn about automating Cisco DEA Center operations using a P I out Pluralsight.
