App Overview

This document provides an overview of the App including critical information and import considerations when applying it to your Nautobot environment.


Throughout this documentation, the terms "app" and "plugin" will be used interchangeably.


A plugin for Nautobot, that intends to be a small shim layer between nornir-nautobot and other plugins. The primary abilities that the plugin provides is a native Nornir ORM based inventory and a credential manager.

Architecture Overview

As of the writing of this readme, the only plugin leveraging this plugin is the golden-config. However, future plugins are planned, such as the "network importer".

That being said, there is currently little reason to install this plugin by itself, without an enabler, which can be seen represented as the white rectangles inside the yellow rectangle in the diagram above. An enabler could be a Plugin, Job, or another piece of code like a Chatops command.

Audience (User Personas) - Who should use this App?

  • Plugin developers - looking to create integrations via Nautobot with Nornir
  • Users - looking to leverage those plugins
  • Users - looking to run Nornir via an API and UI (via Nautobot Jobs)
