Generate API-KEY to access IOS-XR Vagrant box

Since the IOS-XR Vagrant box is currently under Private-Beta, there is a slightly more involved/secure process for downloading the vagrant boxes.

This is just a one time process. Once you have your API-KEY, you can start downloading boxes without going through this again.

Follow along and we’ll get you going:

  • To begin, make sure you have a CCO-ID. If you don’t have one, create it here:

    You will need to activate your account once you receive an Email from Cisco, post sign-up. Without the activation, your subsequent login will fail.

  • Request Access to the Vagrant box by filling up the form here:

    You will get a confirmation email from us stating that you have been granted access

  • Once you have access, browse to the artifactory that houses the vagrant box, here:

    Click on SSO login as shown below:


  • you will be redirected to the page below. Login using your CCO ID


  • Once you’re in, Click on your user-name on the top right to open up the profile settings:

  • Click on “Copy key to clipboard” to copy your API-KEY for browser-free operation!
