Nautobot Device Onboarding
A plugin for Nautobot to easily onboard new devices.
nautobot-device-onboarding plugin is using the netmiko and NAPALM libraries to simplify the onboarding process of a new device into Nautobot down to, in many cases, an IP Address and a Site. In some cases, the user may also have to specify a specific Device Platform and Device Port.
Regardless, the Onboarding Plugin greatly simplifies the onboarding process by allowing the user to specify a small amount of info and having the plugin populate a much larger amount of device data in Nautobot.
