Netbox2Netshot is a tool that allows you to synchronize your Netbox DCIM (using specific criterias) to Netshot so your devices would automatically get backed up by Netshot once added in Netbox.

The tool is coded in Rust and doesn't required any runtime dependency installed

How to use


Gather a pre-built binary, deb or rpm package or install it using Cargo

cargo install netbox2netshot
