How to setup ACS 5.1 to provide TACACS+ VSA/options/av-pair for Nexus?

I am trying to setup ACS 5.1 to pass the VSA attributes as defined in the NX-OS config guide, but I cant find TACACS+ VSA as an option in ACS 5.1, only RADIUS VSA.

From config guide:


The Cisco TACACS+ implementation supports one vendor-specific option using the format

recommended in the IETF specification. The Cisco vendor ID is 9, and the supported option is vendor

type 1, which is named cisco-av-pair. The value is a string with the following format


Any ideas on where to look and how to do this?

You can define it in "Policy Elements  > Authorization and Permissions  > Device Administration > Shell Profiles" by using the format mentioned in NX-OS guide in the link below.
