When a Wide Area Network (WAN) network is growing rapidly across multiple sites and remote locations, organizations often seek adoptive configurations for WAN routers. Presented herein is a technique that provides for the ability to automatically identify a private circuit provider's "Color" (and/or other identifier(s) for the WAN overlay of the circuit provider) and to generate adoptive configurations that can be pushed to WAN edge routers. The technique presented herein can enable organizations to avoid human error in identifying links, miss-calling or mis-labeling, and/or suboptimal path selections.
