MPSK Passphrase

    I am testing MPSK on Clearpass & AOS and we want to implement specific MPSK per group of devices for IOT instead of per device MPSK.

    This scenario work OK with some changes on the MPSK Template generated service & policies.

    I have a problem if I want to set the Attribute "Aruba-MPSK-Passphrase", the only choice available is auto generated PSK as display below.

    The field is not editable !!

    Is there any way to set the Passphrase to a specific value instead of an auto generated value ?

    Kind regards

    What may work is to export the config (with password!) then change the value in XML and import again. That should work.

    Hello Herman,

    As usual your solutions / workarounds are working like a charm.

    Tested and working :-)  Insert & update from XML permit to set the group PSK to a specific value

    Thanks and kind regards
