I configured bgp-ls in ODL and I',m able to capture packets through wireshark.Also I'm able to get the topology id and node id through yang ui. But when I login to Dlux GUI I'm not able to see my topology by clicking on the topology button on top of GUI. A small white rectangular box comes up.| Please Help

AFAIK Dlux is not supporting visualization of BGP-LS topology.

Looks like your switches are not connected to ODL.

Are you able to see any node entry when you use following GET request? http://localhost:8181/restconf/operational/opendaylight-inventory:nodes Note: Change 'localhost' to your ODL controller IP if it is not in the same machine.

Can you share what URLs you are using for getting topology id & node id.

Yes Mandeep I'm able to see one node entry with id "controller-config" on clicking the link. I'm using this URL for getting the topology id: Also I'm using the same machine so I don't think the problem ha something to do with IP address.

Also if u can elaborate more on the connection with switch part.

You are connecting your nodes as NETCONF. Netconf has two interfaces NBI (Northbound) & SBI (Southbound). NBI: Act as Netconf Server, which all get connected to your ODL as loopback and shows as 'controller config'. THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE SEEING. SBI: Act as Netconf Client. Which connects to your nodes and will show under topology. So, I deally, you don't have your nodes connected to ODL. Which could be because your missing or wrong NCC (Netconf Connector Client) snapshot. See for all netconf connection related details.

Mandeep im also facing the same issue can you give a solution for this. Do i need to install the netopeer as mentioned in the link you shared or what should i do exactly to connect my devices or nodes to the ODL and view the topology in DLUX web ui. thank you

@n4zu46 What is your exact issue? My answer was related to Netconf, but later question was edited as issue with bgp-ls (i got -1 for wrong diagnose) :) If your problem is with Netconf please ask a separate question..surely you will get ans.
