What is the Nautobot Welcome Wizard?¶
The Welcome Wizard is a getting started wizard for Nautobot to assist a new user with necessary initial steps in populating data.
The Welcome Wizard adds four (4) key features:
Import Wizard - Welcome Wizard uses the
Import Wizardto allow ease of adding community defined Device Types and Manufacturers into Nautobot.
Quick-Start Settings - Welcome Wizard includes settings that are enabled by default to ease the user in setting up and syncing from a Git Repository.
Helpful Middleware - Welcome Wizard includes middleware banners to assist with Nautobot resource creation.
Dashboard - The Welcome Wizard Dashboard contains a list of common Nautobot Data Models that many other Nautobot models require. This page allows ease of adding items to Nautobot or, if supported, importing them. This ties all of the features together.
