All credit should go to Jeremy. Thanks, Jeremy!

This project just looks to build on top of this framework and model presented.

See the CONTRIBUTING for more information.


Each Plugin Version listed below has been tested with its corresponding NetBox Version.

NetBox Version Plugin Version
3.2 1.0.1
3.3 1.1.0
3.4 1.2.2
3.5 1.3.0


For adding to a NetBox Docker setup see the general instructions for using netbox-docker with plugins.

You can install with pip:

pip install netbox-acls

or by adding to your local_requirements.txt or plugin_requirements.txt (netbox-docker):



Enable the plugin in /opt/netbox/netbox/netbox/, or if you use netbox-docker, your /configuration/ file :


    "netbox_acls": {
        "top_level_menu": True # If set to True the plugin will add a top level menu item for the plugin. If set to False the plugin will add a menu item under the Plugins menu item.  Default is set to True.


VSCode + Docker + Dev Containers

To develop this plugin further one can use the included .devcontainer configuration. This configuration creates a docker container which includes a fully working netbox installation. Currently it should work when using WSL 2. For this to work make sure you have Docker Desktop installed and the WSL 2 integrations activated.

  1. In the WSL terminal, enter code to run Visual studio code.
  2. Install the devcontainer extension "ms-vscode-remote.remote-containers"
  3. Press Ctrl+Shift+P and use the "Dev Container: Clone Repository in Container Volume" function to clone this repository. This will take a while depending on your computer
  4. If you'd like the netbox instance to be prepopulated with example data from netbox-initializers run make initializers
  5. Start the netbox instance using make all

Your netbox instance will be served under, so it should now be available under localhost:8000.
