configure identity-management access-list

configure identity-management access-list source-address [mac | ip]


Configures the access-list source-address type.

Syntax Description

mac Specifies MAC addresses.
ip Specifies IP addresses.


MAC addresses.

Usage Guidelines

The identity management feature can install ACLs for identities based on the source MAC or source IP address. By default the MAC address of the identity is used to install the ACLs. Every network entity has a MAC address, but not all network devices have an IP address, so we recommend that you use the default mac selection to install ACLs for network entities based on the source MAC address.

You must disable the identity management feature with the disable identity-management command before you use this command.


The following command configures the identity management feature to use MAC-based ACLs:

* Switch.4 # configure identity-management access-list source-address mac


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.6.
