    Hello,
    I try to find some information on how to setup an authentication source that rely on a external DB, but accessed via HTTP REST.
    I find the basics to create it, but I didn't find the return format required by Clearpass (Clear text, JSON, ...)

    Any link or advice on it ?

    Thanks
    arno

    It's json that you would need to return. Example, if you return the following json (application/json):

    { "Framed-IP-Address": "100.1.2.3", "Blah": true, "Weather": "cool"}

    And the following filter in your Authentication Source:

    And you will see this in Access Tracker:
