3.3. Begin creating the initial deployment via Guided Configuration

The SSL Orchestrator Guided Configuration presents a streamlined user experience. This workflow-based architecture provides intuitive, re-entrant configuration steps tailored to the selected topology.

The following steps will walk through the Guided Configuration UI to build a simple transparent forward proxy.

3.3.1. Initialization

From the left-hand menu, navigate to SSL Orchestrator > Configuration.

If this is the first time accessing SSLO in a new BIG-IP build, the guided configuration UI will automatically load and deploy the built-in SSLO package as shown below.

3.3.2. Configuration review and prerequisites

Take a moment to review the topology options and workflow configuration steps involved. Optionally satisfy any of the DNS, NTP and Route prerequisites from this page. Keep in mind, however, that aside from NTP, the SSLO GC will provide an opportunity to define DNS and route settings later in the workflow.

Note

DNS and NTP settings have already been defined in this lab.
