Controller Based WLANs

What are the different roles we can assign to a management user on the controller ?

Environment- The following information was tested on 6.4.2.3 AOS version.

Answer- What are the different roles we can assign to a management user on the controller ?

(Aruba) (config) #mgmt-user admin1 ?
<rolename>              Role name from one of the following:
                        root - super user role
                        guest-provisioning - guest provisioning role
                        network-operations - Network operator role
                        read-only - Read only role
                        location-api-mgmt - Location API Management Role

* root: Permits access to all management functions on the controller.
* guest-provisioning: Allows the user to create guest accounts on a special WebUI page. 
* location-api-mgmt: Permits access to location API information. You can log into the CLI; however, you cannot use any CLI commands. 
* network-operations: Permits access to Monitoring, Reports, and Events pages in the WebUI. You can log into the CLI; however, you can only use a subset of CLI commands to monitor the controller. 
* read-only: Permits access to CLI show commands or WebUI monitoring pages only. 

We can create a management user on of the above five roles.

Once you have logged in as a management user we can check the role by the command "whoami", which gives the user's assigned role.

(Aruba) #whoami
user admin - role root

(Aruba) #whoami
user Test7 - role root

(Aruba) #whoami
user Test - role read-only

Also we can check all the available management users by the below command:

(Aruba) #show mgmt-user
