default-profile (Juniper Secure Connect)


Hierarchy Level


Configure default profile. On your security device, you must specify one of the remote-access profiles as the default profile.


Starting in Junos OS Release 23.1R1, we’ve hidden the default-profile option at the [edit security remote-access] hierarchy level. In releases before Junos OS Release 23.1R1, you use this option to specify one of the remote-access profiles as the default profile in Juniper Secure Connect. But with changes to the format of remote-access profile names, we no longer require the default-profile option.

We’ve deprecated default-profile option—rather than immediately removing it—to provide backward compatibility and a chance to make your existing configuration conform to the changed configuration. You’ll receive a warning message if you continue to use the default-profile option in your configuration. However existing deployments are not affected if you modify the current configuration. See profile (Juniper Secure Connect).

In existing deployments, to ensure a smooth transition with this change, we recommend that you modify the current configuration with profile hr to or at the [edit] hierarchy using below commands -

For new configurations, consider the following scenarios to create a new remote-access profile based on how your end users connect using the Juniper Secure Connect application -

  • If your end users connect using an IP address, specify the IP address in the profile name.

  • If your end users connect using FQDN, specify the FQDN in the profile name.

  • If you need to separate users with different realm values such as hr, append /hr to the IP address or FQDN as follows -

    • [edit security remote-access profile]

    • [edit security remote-access profile]
