Configuration Lock

Overview

Configuration Lock is a feature of ZEDEDA Cloud that enables you to exclude an edge node from automated configuration updates to your fleet of edge nodes.

You can enable Configuration Lock on individual edge nodes or at the project level. When you enable Configuration Lock on a project, the feature will be enabled on all edge nodes that belong to that project. When you onboard a new edge node to a project that has Configuration Lock enabled, the new node will have the feature enabled by default.

Note: Configuration Lock is only available on projects with the Legacy type.

When you enable Configuration Lock on an edge node, the node will queue automatic updates rather than applying them. When you disable Configuration Lock on an edge node, its queued updates will be applied.

There are some configuration updates that will bypass a configuration lock. The following Lifecycle events will each generate a new configuration:

  • device reboot
  • activation or deactivation of edge-view

You can also manually push specific configuration updates to a locked node using the ZEDEDA API. Through the API, you can also see the "latest device configuration", which lists all updates that are queued but not applied.
