    what is the meaning of Tips in clearpass policy > Rule when adding new entry? like what does it stands for and how does it function?

    i tried to locate one of the value, Tips: [Machine Authentication], so I went through Identity > Role but cannot find related value.

    The closest info i can find are:

    Tips = Enterprise Trust and Identity Policy System

    # Airheads Community (

    But i am not sure that post is exactly asking what im looking for.

    Trying to look at Identity > role based on the description of the functionality in the pdf (page 625)

    NOTE: A condition in an enforcement policy rule can contain attributes from the following namespaces: Tips:Role, Tips:Posture, and Date.

    NOTE: The value field for the Tips:Role attribute can be a role defined in Policy Manager, or a role fetched from the authorization source


    Thank you.

    Tips = Enterprise Trust and Identity Policy System

    And it's the name of ClearPass Policy Manager before it got named ClearPass. It's still in there, and if you know that Tips == CPPM, and Tips:Role = the ClearPass Role, then you are good to go.
