Add role mappings

Network Device Role mappings tie roles to connection locations and network access options, such as VLANs.

Settings

Field

Definition

Role

If the checkbox is enabled, you can select an existing Role from the drop-down list for this mapping.

If the checkbox is not enabled, this mapping is not tied to a specific role, however the other criteria in the mapping, such as Location must match the connecting device or the mapping will not be used.

If you configure a mapping with no Role, you may want to make sure its Rank places it towards the bottom of the list of rankings. Device connections are compared to the mappings from the lowest (1) to the highest. The first match is used.

CLI

CLI configuration that will be applied. CLI configurations are applied to the device or port where the device connects. See CLI configuration for additional information.

Location

One or more groups of devices or ports where the device must be connected in order for this mapping to apply. If this field has been left blank, then location will not be used as a selection requirement for this mapping.

Access Value
