Starting with ArubaOS-Switch 16.08, authentication, authorization support is provided for Local, RADIUS and TACACS+ for the REST interface. Accounting for REST interface is supported on RADIUS and TACACS+. REST users can choose either per-switch passwords or authentication based on RADIUS or TACACS+.
NOTE: The REST interface behavior has changed and customers upgrading to 16.08 must be aware of the changes. For details, see Migrating from pre-16.08 code base to 16.08.
