Default superuser CLI access via TACACS authentication

L1 Bithead

Have auth profile setup to use a TACACS server.  VSA is passing "superuser" as the admin profile, but it is not giving me access to the CLI as superuser, only GUI.  I know I could create another admin profile and grant access that way, but it locks out Admins and Admin Roles from the GUI.  Is there anyway to use external auth and get superuser on both GUI and CLI?

create an admin role that is superuser, then have the VSA reflect the profile name, or create an admin superuser, and set it's authentication profile to tacacs

When I create a role and give it superuser (Web GUI), it seems to block out the ability to work with admins and admin profiles for that profile.  So, they really don't get superuser ability.  Would be nice if a VSA existed to pass the CLI attributes (superuser, superreader, etc).

Still have not seen how to do this.  Has anybody gotten TACACS authentication for CLI access working?
