Cisco APIC

Starting version 5.0, IP Fabric collects information from APIC controllers and provides information about Tenants (including Contexts/VRFs, Applications, Endpoint groups and Contracts) and APIC cluster members.

Information about controllers is collected via SSH.

Tenants, applications, contracts etc. data are collected via API.

To successfully collect data from Cisco APIC, it is necessary to configure Cisco APIC in the global Vendor API settings and to add the Cisco APIC IP address to the discovery seeds.

Go to Settings → Discovery & Snapshots → Discovery Settings → Discovery Seeds and add Cisco APIC IP address.

Go to Settings → Discovery & Snapshots → Discovery Settings → Vendors API and click + Add.
