Aruba Central - Palo Alto - User ID Question

L0 Member

Hey Guys,


I have a bunch of access points in Aruba Central, we are currently using UserID as a way to assign username to IP address with Palo Alto. I have found these instructions and preliminary testing seems to be working. Just wondering if anyone with experience knows if this is will work or is there a better way.?

Hi @MichaelSeddon ,


Getting User-ID information from 802.1x authentication (Aruba WiFi) is the best way.  When a user authenticates to the network, their username and IP address are immediately sent to the NGFW.  I didn't look at the doc much, but if you get both logins and logouts that is excellent.


You would not have User-ID information for wired users.  You would need to fill that gap.
