SD-WAN Orchestrator allows an Enterprise user to monitor the status of SD-WAN Edges and their Bastion states from the Monitor > Network Overview page.

Clicking Monitor > Network Overview in the navigation panel opens the Network Overview screen. In the Summary dashboard table, a new column Bastion State is added to display Bastion state for the SD-WAN Edges.
Based on the Edge status and Bastion state, you can infer if a SD-WAN Edge is activated against a Bastion or Production Orchestrator:
  • When a SD-WAN Edge is activated against a Bastion Orchestrator then the Edge status appears Green and Bastion state transitions to Staged.
  • When a SD-WAN Edge is activated against a Production Orchestrator then the Edge status appears Green and Bastion state transitions to Unconfigured.
SD-WAN Edge Bastion States and Transitions

Transitions are driven by Edge heartbeats (which occur under normal circumstances every 15 seconds).

The following table describes the Bastion state types and transitions for a SD-WAN Edge.

Bastion State Description
UNCONFIGURED The initial state of a SD-WAN Edge before it is staged. The SD-WAN Edge is available only in Production Orchestrator.
STAGE_REQUESTED An intermediate state before the SD-WAN Edge is staged to Bastion Orchestrator.
STAGED The SD-WAN Edge is staged to Bastion Orchestrator.
UNSTAGE_REQUESTED An intermediate state before the SD-WAN Edge is removed from Bastion Orchestrator.
UNSTAGED The SD-WAN Edge is removed from Bastion Orchestrator and available only in Production Orchestrator.
PROMOTION_REQUESTED

An intermediate state when a user has requested promotion of the SD-WAN Edge from Bastion Orchestrator to Production Orchestrator.

PROMOTION_PENDING

Configuration for the SD-WAN Edge to be promoted has been pushed to the Bastion Orchestrator and is waiting for the Edge to send heartbeat back to the Production Orchestrator.

PROMOTED The SD-WAN Edge has been successfully promoted and currently heartbeats to the Production Orchestrator.
Orchestrator Events

The following table describes all the Enterprise and Operator events generated in a Bastion Orchestrator configuration setup.
