username-include (Local Authentication)



Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 18.2R1.


Configure a local username that authd can use to request authentication for terminated PPP subscribers. This enables the external RADIUS server to pass implementation-specific configuration for successfully authenticated subscribers. Local authentication supports CPEs that do not negotiate authentication protocols in the same dynamic profile as CPEs that use only PAP or CHAP authentication.

The username takes the following format when you use the default delimiter:


circuit-idInclude the agent circuit identifier (ACI) in the local username.
delimiter characterSpecify the character that separates components that make up the concatenated username.

Default: Period (.)

domain-name nameSpecify the domain name that ends the local username created for the subscribers. The username is sent to RADIUS in the Access-Request message. The string can include the following characters: a through z, A through Z, 0 through 9, “-“, or “.”.
mac-addressInclude the MAC address from the client PDU in the local username.
remote-idInclude the agent remote identifier (ARI) in the local username.
