How to Use StyleBooks Shipped with NetScaler MAS

Jan 24, 2017

A set of StyleBooks are provided by Citrix with NetScaler MAS. When you use such a StyleBook, you have to specify values for the parameters in the StyleBook and select the IP addresses of the NetScaler instances where you want to execute the configuration. After you submit the configuration, NetScaler MAS validates the parameter values you have specified, creates a graph of the configuration, connects to the NetScaler instances, and executes the configuration on the instances.

To create configuration from a StyleBook by using the NetScaler MAS GUI

1.  Navigate to Applications > Configurations, and then click Create New. A list of StyleBooks is displayed.
