Clearpass userPrincipalName users and AD Query

Jump to solution

Hello,

if I understand correctly, user-information fetch with the Web API from Clearpass should be resolved in an AD Account by AD Query. Also the User Groups would be looked up.

I think the problem lays in the fact that we use UPN (userPrincipalName) as the login on our networks.

If I lookup a user with:

pep s u q usr <username>

PDP: <127.0.0.1, 00000000>; UID: <915a1f11>
==================================================
  Client ID          : <<IP-address>, 00000000>
  Authentication Key : <Unavailable>
  Brute force counter: 0
  Username           : <username>@<suffix>
  Machine name       : <IP-address>
  User groups        : <Unavailable>
  Machine groups     : <Unavailable>
  Compliance         : <Unavailable>
  Identity Role      : <>

pdp m u <username>

************************************************************************************

I can see that it is working, but the User Groups aren't fetched.

On the Clearpass side, i set:

"calculate-roles":1,"fetch-user-groups":0,"fetch-machine-groups":0

(as documented by Aruba/HPE)

I read a lot of documentation and think if AD Query is working (it is) and the Web API is giving results, the correlation should be done.

Could it have to do something with the Domain-field in the LDAP Account Unit?

Thanks for any advice and kind regards,

Peter Kruppa

Hi Dameon,

thanks for the fast response.

I already found that article but it is for versions: R75.40, R75.45, R75.46, R75.47, R76, R77, R77.10, R77.20, R77.30

We are running R80.20...

Kind regards,

Peter

As far as I know, it should still be relevant for R80.20 as well.

Thanks Dameon, you were indeed right and it did the trick.

I didn't have access to the content and assumed it was a hotfix.

Next time I will check beforehand 🙂

Kind regards

Daemon,

 

any idea if changing the setting to UPN will affect any other portions of identity awareness or does this only affect how the identity API interacts?  If we are using AD query, radius, and portal will this also change these to UPN?

What it impacts is how gateways query LDAP to get groups for a given user.
It doesn't impact other Identity Awareness functions.
