Any chance we can get an export button?  PDF and CSV?

Hi Aaron

Yes, we are planning on export feature for future release




In this moment, we can´t use this app... any problem?

Jacob Snyder

Curious on where the export feature stands.  Would love to see json as an option.


or, api access so we can get the results directly.


I agree, we should be following the DevNet lead allowing an API access to get all of the information via JSON. Would love to be able to use Python to push a config file up to the platform, have it analyzed, and return all the data in a JSON structure for consumption.


Hi ,


this tool is not working , please suggest how to use it .

Hi Jagjeet

I just tested, and the tool worked fine, could you unicast me what file types are you trying to use?

The tool uses "sh run-config" output, either in text or ZIP compressed formats


Bruno Dinis

hello good night.
Can anyone explain why there's not an offline tool for that?
People might not want to share specific configurations with cisco.

Thank you in advance.

Jacob Snyder


there is an offline version of this tool.  It’s called WLCCA (Wireless LAN Controller Config Analyzer)


This web tool is the “Express” version.
