A Gateway Pool is a group of Gateways.

Gateways can be organized into pools that are then assigned to a network. An unpopulated default Gateway pool is available after you install SD-WAN Orchestrator. If required, you can create additional Gateway pools.

As a Partner Super user and Partner Admin user, you can create, manage, download, and delete Gateway pools created by a Partner user or a Partner Managed Gateway pools created by the Operator.
Note: The Gateway pools feature is not supported for Partner Business Specialist user and Partner IT support user.

The New Gateway Pool and Download options are available only for Partners with Gateway management access activated. If the Gateway management access is deactivated for a Partner, then the Partner will have only read-only permission for the configured Gateway pools. To request Gateway Management access, Partners must contact the Operator Super user.

To manage Gateway pools, perform the following steps:

  1. Log into the Orchestrator as a Partner Super user or Admin user.

  2. Click the Open New Orchestrator UI option available at the top of the Window to launch New Orchestrator UI.
  3. In the New Orchestrator UI, click the Gateway Management tab and go to Gateway Pools in the left navigation pane.

    The Gateway Pools page appears.

To search a specific Gateway pool, enter a relevant search text in the Search box. For advanced search, click the filter icon next to the Search box to filter the results by specific criteria.

The Map Distribution section is used for displaying the Gateways on a map. You can click the + and - buttons to zoom in and zoom out the map, respectively. In the Gateway Pools table, if you have selected any Gateway pools then only the Gateways in the selected pools are displayed on the map. Otherwise, all all Gateways are displayed on the map.

The Gateway Pools table displays the existing Gateway pools with the following details.
