Not sure, but check if CLI Based enforcement profile helps to update.

Currently there is no mechanism for doing this over RADIUS. You could submit a feature request in the Aruba Innovation zone, but CPPM is not really set up to manage a switch like an NMS appliance. You could look into how Airwave or Aruba Central can help you out here.

In theory you could get ClearPass to make a call to the switch's RESTful API to inject the information. However, ClearPass is an authentication system not a network management system.

What specifically do you want to update the port's description to say?

If the idea is to indicate which device is connected to the port surely it would be easier to extract this from ClearPass?
