Netservice and Netdestination Downloadable User Role

After netservice and Netdestination support for class filters, user can create class filters with alias. For Downloadable User Role (DUR), all the class policies are configured in ClearPass. For Netservice and Netdestination DUR, alias commands must be configured before the policy and class rule are configured in ClearPass.

Several devices can reuse downloadable configurations after changing the host or network IP specified in the net-destination.
