TitleHow to create a Location Based Access Control on NSiGHT
Objective
Create separation between accounts to enter different locations based on the management policy.
Environment
  • All Summit WM3000 Series Controllers
  • ExtremeWiNG Controllers
  • WirelessWiNG Controllers
  • ExtremeWiNG Access Points
  • WirelessWiNG Acess Points
  • WiNG v5.X Software
  • NSiGHT
Procedure
Over the management policy, you need to create the new user as monitor role and set up the locations you want the account to have access:
management-policy default
 no telnet
 no http server
 https server
 rest-server
 ssh
 user admin password 1 xxxxxxx role superuser access all
 user restrictedUI password 1 xxxxxxxxx role monitor access web allowed-locations brno133
 allowed-location brno133 locations BRNO133
If you want to configure it over GUI, it can be done under the path Configuration/Management/YourManagementPolicy

User-added image

After you click in your management policy, in this case, default, you will have the chance to add the new account, following the same configuration pattern as in CLI, we get the following account:

User-added image

The last step to follow, is to add that location in your allowed locations, for that, you need to access the following tab:

User-added image

And add the location you want those account to access, the name of that location should match the one you added on the account settings:

After you enter all the data, click ok and commit and save all the settings.
 
Additional notes
  • This is only valid for NSiGHT location access, this feature is not working nor expected to be released for separated access on WiNG software.
  • If you want a better insight of which and how to configure NSiGHT features, please check the deployment guide NSiGHT deployment guide 5.8.4
  • Ensure you have already the tree structure defined in the Tree Setup, under the Management Policy tab.
