Note: This command should only be used for troubleshooting issues with a specific client or device. This command allows you to manually assign a client or device to a role. For example, you can create a role “debugging” that includes a policy to mirror session packets to a specified destination for further examination, then use this command to assign the “debugging” role to a specific client. Use the aaa user delete command to remove the client or device from the role. Note that issuing this command does not affect ongoing sessions that the client may already have.
