Retrieving live data automation action is used to retrieve device data by executing specified CLI commands and selecting built-in data types, such as configuration files, device and Interface information, Route/ARP/MAC/NDP/STP table, BGP advertised-route table, and NCT table. When retrieving live data, the system attempts to access devices by using Telnet/SSH first with the credentials configured in the Network Settings, and then issues CLI commands to retrieve data.
