Session abstract:

Building a cross-domain automation pipeline with Cisco DNA Center and ACI can help to simplify and speed up the process of configuration deployment from development to production environment. In this lab session, the participants will work to build the bridge between these two domains and include both in an automated CI/CD pipeline using Infrastructure as Code (IaC). Using CI/CD practices can also help reduce the risk of human error and improve the overall quality of configuration deployments.

During the lab execution you will:

  • Push configuration to DNAC & ACI with automated validation and testing
  • Maintain your network configs in a Git repository
  • Build CI/CD pipelines using GitLab
  • Get all the code as a takeaway

The aim of this session is not to interconnect an ACI fabric with a SDA fabric (DNA Center).
