Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3X48-D30.


Configure the Web API function daemon (webapi) component of the integrated ClearPass authentication and enforcement feature. The Web API daemon acts as a HTTP or HTTPS server. The SRX Series device exposes to the Aruba ClearPass Policy Manager (CPPM) the Web API that allows the CPPM, as a client, to send POST request messages to it that provide the SRX Series device with user authentication and identity information. The CPPM serves as the user authentication source for the SRX Series device.

The Web API function (webapi) facilitates efficient transmission of user authentication and identity information from the CPPM to the SRX Series device. The CPPM, which is the client in this relationship, initiates a session with the SRX Series device Web API daemon, which is the server in this relationship. However, the CPPM can do this only if you have configured the Web API function on the SRX Series device. For security reasons, the Web API daemon is not enabled by default.

The configuring statements are explained separately. See the CLI Explorer.
