configure identity-management role priority

configure identity-management role role_name priority pri_value


Configures a priority value for the specified role.

Syntax Description


Specifies the name of an existing role that you want to configure.


Specifies the role priority; the lower the priority number, the higher the priority. The range of values is 1 to 255. Value 1 represents the highest priority, and value 255 represents the lowest priority.



Usage Guidelines

The role priority determines which role a user is mapped to when the user‘s attributes match the match-criteria of more than 1 role. If the user‘s attributes match multiple roles, the highest priority (lowest priority value) role applies. If the priority is the same for all matching roles, the role for which the priority was most recently set or modified is used.


The following example configures the role named India-Engr to use the highest priority:

* Switch.33 # configure identity-management role "India-Engr" priority 1
