No Endpoint “Updated At” Parameter

  • 1.  No Endpoint “Updated At” Parameter

    Posted Feb 05, 2020 11:12 AM

    Hello Community,

    I want to clean up the endpoints using Cluster-Wide Clean Up Interval. For example, I want the “Unknown endpoints cleanup interval” change to 7 days.

    Excerpt from manual for “Unknown endpoints cleanup interval” :
    Specify the duration in number of days that ClearPass uses to determine when to start deleting unknown entries from the Endpoint repository.
    Unknown entries are deleted based on the last Updated At value for each Endpoint.
    For example, if this value is 7, then unknown Endpoints that do not have the Updated At value within the last 7 days (stale endpoints) are deleted.
    The default value is 0 days. This indicates that no cleanup interval is specified.


    So the cleanup interval based on endpoint’s Updated At value. Althought all endpoints have “Added At”, “Last Profiled At” but there is no “Updated At” parameter therefore the clean up interval do not effect.

    How do I add “Updated At” to endpoints?  My CPPM version 6.7.11


    Best Regards!

    Internally the field displayed as 'Last profiled at' is known as Updated at. Documentation should be adapted, I'll bring that up internally.

    If you have issues with the endpoint cleanup not working, please open a case through your partner or direct if you have access with Aruba Support to get the cleanup investigated.
