CLEARPASS Network Devices Attributes



I know it is possible to use Device Attributes in a Service Rule,


But we also would like to use NAD Device Attribute values in an Enforcement profile


The question is: is this possible?

And if this is possible how can we get access to these atributes

Re: CLEARPASS Network Devices Attributes

The NAD "attributes" appear in the AccessTracker event's Input-->Computed section. In my example I have Device:Device Type, Device: Device Vendor and Device:Location. I believe these can be referenced using %{Device:Location}. Hence, you should be able to use these to differentiate the policy assigned to say a 2930 switch v CX.

Annoyingly the Vendor information is not natively available. Though it shouldn't be too hard to use the XML to add attributes.

You can always add your own device attribute to use for enforcement. You can also define your own Device attribute by going to Administration > Dictionaries > Dictionary Attributes. Click on add new, choose a Entity type of device, and choose a Data Type of String. Name your attribute, and then click Add. See attached screen shots.
