If you want to integrate Auvik with Kentik to access AuvikFlow, contact sales. They’ll walk you through the AuvikFlow subscription details and get you set up with a Kentik account.

Integration between Auvik and Kentik is configured for specific devices. After you’ve configured the Kentik integration, you’ll be able to see AuvikFlow reports and graphs for all enabled devices. See How can I see AuvikFlow reports? for more detail.

How to add a Kentik device

Adding a device in Auvik adds the device to your Kentik account.

  1. Click Integrations in the side navigation bar.
  2. In the displayed list of integrations, click the row for the AuvikFlow (Kentik) integration.
  3. Click the Add Kentik Device button.
  4. In Auvik, fill in the following mandatory detail. All other detail is optional.
    1. If you’re an MSP, select an Auvik client.
    2. Select the Auvik device.
    3. Select the appropriate plan devices should be added to.
    4. Add a Kentik description.
    5. Specify the flow sampling rate.
  5. Click Save.

Now that you’ve added the devices for which you want traffic visibility, you can view the available AuvikFlow reports and graphs.

If a client’s mapped Auvik device is deleted from their dashboard, you’ll see a warning icon () in the list of Kentik devices. If this icon appears, edit the Kentik device to re-select the device it should be mapped to.

How edit a Kentik device

Devices that already exist in Kentik are listed with a mapped Auvik device of Unknown. To get detail about the device, you need to associate the Auvik device to the Kentik device.

  1. Click Integrations in the side navigation bar
  2. In the displayed list of integrations, click the row for the AuvikFlow (Kentik) integration.
  3. In the displayed list of Kentik devices, find the one you want to edit. Check the box at the beginning of its row.
  4. Click the Edit button.
  5. Make any edits you want, including selecting the Auvik device. If you’re an MSP, you also need to select an Auvik client to which the device is associated.
  6. Click Save.

You can now view AuvikFlow reports and graphs for the device.
