User-defined user groups

The switch enables you to create up to 29 user-defined local user groups, for the purpose of configuring local authorization. Each of the 29 user-defined groups support up to 1024 CLI command authorization rules that define what CLI commands can be executed by members of the group. See user-group .

The local user groups with their command execution rules are useful for the following:
  • Providing authorization for use with RADIUS servers.

  • Providing fallback authorization for use with TACACS+ servers.

  • Providing authorization when neither RADIUS or TACACS+ servers are used.
