option to send the SSID for the 802.1x authentication request.

Folks,

I recollect there was an option on the Wireless controller to send the SSID in the 802.1x authentication request to the server.

 

As of now, I am unable to find out where that option is. It was a simple checkbox.

 

We have our certificate based authentication going to a Cisco ACS and just to get some documentation on place I am trying to find where that checkbox was.

 

Please let me know.

 

 

Thanks!!

It is in the radius server configuration.

Not sure on the GUI but via CLI is as below.

 

aaa authentication-server radius <rad_server_name>
called-station-id type
  {ap-group | ap-macaddr | ap-name | ipaddr | macaddr | vlan-id}
  [delimiter {colon | dash | none}] [include-ssid {enable |disable}]

If my post is helpful please give kudos, or mark as solved if it answers your post.

Specifically, Aruba Controller Radius requests always send the SSID in Aruba Attribute, Aruba-Essid-Name

When you enable the "Include SSID" parameter in the Called Station ID section of the radius server, it sends the SSID appended to the BSSID of the AP in the Called-Station-ID radius attribute:
