Special roles

Special roles are always local roles that are created to support instances when the deployments are not yet complete. They are also helpful when any network issues occur during authentication of devices. Special roles are always purpose-based, that is, they are applied only in instances such as the RADIUS server is not reachable for authentication or when a single role has to be applied across all switches.

The following special roles are available:

  • Critical role

  • Reject role

  • Pre-authentication role

  • Auth-role
