Extreme Networks User-ID to PanOS 10.x?

L0 Member

We moved to a setup with Extreme Networks and Palo Alto a few months back.


On the wireless side, our users connect using Extreme's (originally Aerohive's) PPSK, which has user-ID info. We'd like that user-id to show up in PanOS.


I was sent this document but it appears to be out of date (it's from 2013), the script definitely is out of date: https://manualzz.com/doc/23623919/aerohive-and-palo-alto-networks


Is anyone else doing this? Is there any new guidance from PaloAlto on how to accomplish this integration?






I have the same Issue

I'm working with the same link, I tuning the code to forward logs from Kiwi syslog to the firewall

Did you figure this out?

I am sending syslogs from each Aerohive AP to a PA User-ID Agent on a server. They are then sent to my PA FW. 


I had to reformat the syslog filter to :

type Field

event string : ah_auth

Username Prefix : username

Username Delimiter: \s

address prefix: ip

Address Delimiter: \s

Address per log: 1


I came to this post because I am researching how to consolidate the logs a bit. I have more AH APs than the User-ID agent allows. I will look into Kiwi or a second User-ID agent.

I had to set this aside due to other priorities, but am back on it.


To date I haven't figured this out and am surprised that Extreme and Palo Alto don't have documentation or a best practices guide on this. I know I'm not the only Extreme/Palo Alto customer.


Right now I have the data coming in from Extreme to Kiwi Syslog and I can see it all.


The challenge I'm still trying to sort out is how to get it over to the Palo Alto device.


@Sau29Admin are you saying that you are sending it from a syslog server to the Palo Alto User-ID agent?


I'm using the User-ID agent to get User-ID's off wired clients.

Just in case you come across this thread extreme has come with a solution to populate userid thru api.   Have a look here.  It might work for you.
