Generate API-KEY to access IOS-XR Vagrant box

Since the IOS-XR Vagrant box is currently under Private-Beta, there is a slightly more involved/secure process for downloading the vagrant boxes.

This is just a one time process. Once you have your API-KEY, you can start downloading boxes without going through this again.

Follow along and we’ll get you going:

  • To begin, make sure you have a CCO-ID. If you don’t have one, create it here:

    http://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do

    You will need to activate your account once you receive an Email from Cisco, post sign-up. Without the activation, your subsequent login will fail.

  • Request Access to the Vagrant box by filling up the form here:

    https://xrdocs.github.io/getting-started/iosxr-vagrant-beta

    You will get a confirmation email from us stating that you have been granted access

  • Once you have access, browse to the artifactory that houses the vagrant box, here:

    http://devhub.cisco.com/artifactory/webapp/#/login

    Click on SSO login as shown below:

    artifactory-login

  • you will be redirected to the page below. Login using your CCO ID

    sso-login

  • Once you’re in, Click on your user-name on the top right to open up the profile settings:

    open-artifactory-profile

  • Now generate an API-KEY as shown below:

    generate-api-key

  • Click on “Copy key to clipboard” to copy your API-KEY for browser-free operation!

    copy-api-key

Now head over to the
IOS-XR Vagrant Quick Start guide
to learn how to use this API-KEY and download the box.
