Configuring Event Publishers

 

Special Types of Event Publishers

The SRC CLI lets you configure global and default retailer event publishers. You can also configure service-specific event publishers, retailer-specific event publishers, and virtual router-specific event publishers.

Configuring Service-Specific Event Publishers

In the value-added services definition, you can configure two event publishers for a service:

  • Authorization plug-ins—Authenticate subscribers of the service and/or authorize service sessions for this service. These plug-in instances are called before a subscription to this service is activated.

  • Tracking plug-ins—Track service sessions of this service. These plug-in instances are called when a service session is started and stopped and during interim updates.

Configuring Retailer-Specific Event Publishers

In the retailer definition, you can configure three event publishers for a retailer:

  • Authentication plug-ins—Authenticate subscribers who log in to the domains of the retailer. These plug-in instances are called when a subscriber tries to log in to the SAE through the portal login.

    If you do not specify retailer-specific authentication plug-ins, the default retailer authentication plug-ins are called. If you do not specify default retailer authentication plug-ins, subscribers are admitted without authentication.

  • Tracking plug-ins—Track sessions of subscribers who log in to the domains of the retailer. These plug-in instances are called after a subscriber session has started and when the session is stopped.

  • DHCP authorization plug-ins—Authenticate DHCP address requests for subscribers who log in to the domains of the retailer.

Configuring Virtual Router–Specific Event Publishers

In the virtual router definition, you can configure an interface-tracking plug-in event publisher for a virtual router. These plug-in instances are called when a managed interface is started and stopped. They are called after an interface comes up, when new policies are installed on the interface, and when the interface goes down.

For more information about device running Junos OS and virtual routers, see the SRC PE Network Guide.

Configuring Global and Default Retailer Event Publishers (SRC CLI)

Use the following configuration statements to configure global and default retailer event publishers.

To configure global and default retailer event publishers:

  1. From configuration mode, access the event publisher configuration. In this sample procedure, the event publishers are configured in the west-region SAE group.

  2. Configure plug-ins that authorize subscriber sessions.

  3. Configure plug-ins that authenticate subscribers who are assigned to retailer objects that do not specify an authentication plug-in.

  4. Configure plug-ins that authenticate DHCP address requests for subscribers who are assigned to retailer objects that do not specify a DHCP authorization plug-in.

  5. Configure plug-ins that authorize all DHCP address requests for all DHCP subscribers who log in to a portal.

  6. Configure plug-ins that authorize all service sessions.

  7. Configure plug-ins that authorize subscribers to change their subscriptions.

  8. Configure plug-ins that collect accounting data for all subscriber sessions.

  9. Configure plug-ins that collect accounting data for all service sessions.

  10. Configure plug-ins, including network information collector (NIC) SAE plug-in agents, that collect accounting data for all interfaces that the SAE manages.

  11. Configure plug-ins that authorize administrators to connect to the embedded Web server, which is used to access SAE Web Admin.

  12. (Optional) Verify your configuration.
