How to make an Audit

First go to the Audit page, you can do that by clicking on Audit located on the navbar.

It will appear a form where you can choose from selecting one to multiple sites or one to multiple devices.

Previous steps

Make sure that you followed the previous steps correctly, or the audit will not work.

In case you select multiple sites or devices, all of them need to have the same username and password, because the system will log in all of them using that same username and password. openNetaudit uses SSHv2 to connect to the devices and runs commands described at the link commands

If you did all the steps correctly a loading page will appear. After the system is done loading, it will show the audit result with all the relevant information about your devices, the results of the tests and the solution for the tests that your devices have failed. You can even see all this information in a json format, clicking on the show JSON button.

If an error ocurred, check down below most common mistakes and how to solve them.
