Single source of truth (SSOT) in network automation refers to a centralized and authoritative data repository that holds all the information required for network management and operation. It ensures that every network device or system uses the same accurate and up-to-date information to perform its tasks, eliminating inconsistencies and errors caused by outdated or conflicting data. SSOT enables efficient and reliable network automation by providing a unified view of the network and allowing for quick and informed decision-making.
