ArubaOS 16.08 User roles initial role per port



this is how you configure a global initial role:


(config)# aaa authorization user-role initial-role ROLE-STR

but how do you configure it at per-port level?



On page 262 Aruba 2540 Access Security Guide for ArubaOS-Switch 16.08 is just an indication that this is possible.




The default initial role “denyall” is used when no other role applies. If a client connects to the switch and lacks a user role associated, then the initial role is used. Any role can be configured as initial role using this option.Initial role can be configured at per-port level. The per port initial role takes priority over global initial role.

Somehow I can't find any CLI reference guide for ArubaOS 16.08.

What is the command to configure it at a per-port level?

For me, it is a typo on documentation


and you can use ClearPass for push a initial role by port...
