Intent Verification Rules

Edit Intent Verification Rule

Intent verification coloring rules can be fully customized. To do that, click the Pencil icon next to a rule in the Intent Verification Rules box above a technology table.

In our example, we will use the Port-Channel Members State rule above the Link Aggregation (LAG)/Portchannel/Etherchannel Member status table (in Technology → Port channels → Member status table).

Now we can check and change the predefined coloring rules:
