Auvik Network Management

This document provides the steps required to configure the Auvik Network Management integration with Gradient.


The integration with Auvik Network Management syncs billable devices exclusively from this platform and does not currently support Auvik SaaS Management. The integration creates the following services to facilitate mapping and reconciliation with services or products in your PSA, based on your billing requirements:

  • Total Billable Devices
  • Firewalls
  • Controllers
  • Routers 
  • Layer 3 Switches
  • VoIP Switches
  • Switch Stacks
  • Total Switches
  • Access Points

What Counts as a "Billable Device"

For further clarification on what constitutes a billable device in Auvik Network Management, please consult the following article here.

How to Sync "Average Billable Devices"

The current integration focuses on "Total Billable Devices", highlighting online devices marked as managed and meeting Auvik's billable criteria. While there are minor disparities, we're actively improving alignment with Auvik's billing.

Your Auvik dashboard shows real-time data on currently billable online devices. Auvik typically bills MSPs monthly from the 1st to the end of the month, counting any device online during this period as a "billable day".

For a deeper understanding of Auvik's billing and to adjust your billing period or explore insights on average billable devices, log in to your Auvik Network Management portal, go to Settings, and choose Billing.

If you're interested in our custom integration syncing "Average Billable Devices", reach out to us at This integration is temporary until we update our native integration.

Access Points

Although Access Points are not typically classified as billable devices in Auvik Network Management, we have introduced this additional service to reconcile the number of access points deployed at each site to accommodate your billing requirements.

Unmanaged Devices

In Auvik Network Management, there's an option to edit a device and change its status from "billable" to "unmanaged". However, please be aware that we do not currently synchronize "unmanaged" billable devices into Synthesize.

Additionally, Auvik Network Manager employs an "Auvik-identified" device category rather than a user-identified one. This approach is designed to prevent users from altering billable devices like switches and misclassifying them as access points to avoid billing.

It's important to recognize that there may be slight disparities between Auvik's definition of a billable device and the user-identified fields, as well as the "managed" devices synchronized by Synthesize.
