On Demand option Details.

  1. By checking the on-demand checkbox, the user opts to turn on the on-demand feature. On demand feature when turned on reduces the Internet bandwidth requirement for edge to cloud deployments. For edge only deployments, it's recommended to turn off the on-demand feature by unchecking this checkbox.

  2. On demand feature is supported by Nimble versions >= 0.17.3. If using earlier version of Nimble, the on-demand checkbox status in the Nimble configuration page is ignored, and the on-demand feature will stay turned off.

This option is shown with a cross-mark by default to show that manual override option is in disabled mode. When the user clicks on this option it opens up a warning message and dialog box as shown below.
