No, it's locally significant in the config and the switch does not pass it in the RADIUS request so we never see it on the ClearPass side.

Sure, you could use the API. Not sure I’m following what the use case is.

Re: Add interface description in Clearpass

i want to have the overview of switchport and description within one field in clearpass. it is easy for our helpdesk to support users if they also could see the description, because our description describes the physically wallout. if an enduser call the helpdesk and tell the outlet as information, they are able to see all information within one screen, instead of logging also in on the cisco switch to check what the outlet number is.
