Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3X48-D30.


Configure ClearPass as the authentication source for the integrated ClearPass authentication and enforcement feature. You must specify aruba-clearpass as the value of authentication source name, followed by its defining characteristics. You cannot specify the authentication source alone—that is, apart from its configuration parameters that qualify it.

The ClearPass Policy Manager (CPPM), as the authentication source and client of the SRX Series device HTTP server, initiates a connection to the SRX Series device using the Web API that the SRX Series device exposes to it. The CPPM sends user authentication and identity information to the SRX Series device across this connection using HTTP or HTTPS POST request messages.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.

Required Privilege Level

  • services—To view this statement in the configuration.
  • services-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
