Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3X48-D30.


Configure the authentication table priority order. Low number takes precedence. The SRX Series device searches the authentication tables for user authentication entries in the specified priority order. To ensure that it checks the ClearPass authentication table first, configure the lowest number for the ClearPass authentication table priority value, which is identified by aruba-clearpass.

If an entry for the user is not found in the ClearPass authentication table, other authentication tables are searched in the specified priority.
