Activating Subscriber Service Sessions by Using the CLI Overview

A subscriber session represents a specific subscriber—the session consists of the subscriber’s name, the interface used for the session, and any active services for the subscriber. A subscriber can have one subscriber session active at any given time.

You create a subscriber’s service session when you assign a service definition to a subscriber session. Like an AAA-created service, a single subscriber session can have multiple simultaneous service sessions. You can use one method to create the subscriber session, and then a different method to activate the subscriber’s service session. For example, you might use RADIUS to create the AAA subscriber session, then use the CLI to activate the service session for the subscriber, You can optionally specify a service session profile that you want to attach to the service session.

You can use the CLI to activate a service session based on subscriber information or owner information:
