Use default StyleBooks

A set of default StyleBooks are provided along with Citrix Application Delivery Management (ADM). When you use a default StyleBook, you have to specify values for the parameters in the StyleBook and select the IP addresses of the Citrix ADC instances where you want to execute the configuration. After you submit the configuration, Citrix ADM validates the parameter values you have specified, creates a graph of the configuration, connects to the Citrix ADC instances, and executes the configuration on the instances.

To create a configuration from a default StyleBook

  1. Navigate to Applications > Configurations > StyleBooks. The StyleBooks page displays all StyleBooks in Citrix ADM. This list includes both default and custom StyleBooks. You can type the name of the StyleBook in the search field and press the Enter key. Else, you can scroll down the list to find the Stylebook.

    If the Prompt Credentials for Instance Login option is enabled in Citrix ADM > System > Change System Settings > Modify System Settings, you are prompted for your Citrix ADC instance credentials when you execute the configurations on the selected Citrix ADC instances. Else, Citrix ADM uses the instance credentials stored in the instance profile for logging into the instance.

    If you want to test or validate your configuration before executing it on the Citrix ADC instance, select Dry Run and then click Create. If your configuration is valid, the objects that are created on the basis of the values you have provided are displayed.

  4. Clear the Dry Run check box and click Create to create the configpack and execute the configuration on the Citrix ADC instance. The StyleBook configuration (configpack) that you have created appears in the list of configurations, as shown below.
