Issue/Introduction

After exporting the current Virtual Network Assurance (VNA) plugin configuration and making my changes, when I try to send the updated configuration a 401 Unauthorized error is returned

Cause

When you export the existing configuration the passwords/keys are generally hashed or encrypted for security reasons.  This means if you just use what is in the exported configuration, it will not contain the correct access information and will result in a 401 unauthorized error due to this.

Environment

All currently supported VNA releases

Resolution

After exporting the configuration you must ensure you update all passwords and keys to the actual values before submitting the alteration request.
