access rules - role-based

I am trying to setup a new WLAN on an instant by it wont allow me to set the Role-based option to a role of my choice. Each time I go back onto the access page it has reverted back to unrestricted.

The setup is -

1. primary usage -Employee

2. VLAN - custom

3. Security - Enterprise

4. Acces - needs to be role-based


Any ideas why it is not letting me set this?

version is - on a 135

Re: access rules - role-based



It happens if you do not have any rule created for role assignment. create a rule as shown bellow.




Please feel free for any further help on this.

Kind of frustrating because we had these rules setup in Clearpass. Now we have to have them in both places? Kind of redundant, no?

If you're using ClearPass, simply return a value with Aruba-User-Role.

Re: access rules - role-based

After much scrolling I found that I can do a return value for Aruba CPPM Role which made more sense to me than the Aruba user role. Am I correct in that thinking? It seems to be moving traffic along into the correct vlans now.
