Pushing Port Descriptions based on Client changes using PI2.0

Is it possible to write a template or job in PI to catch a trap for a client change on a wired network and push an interface description to the related interface based on that change ? For example, 802.1x client authenticates to port fa0/13 on switch1, trap is sent to prime (assuming one can be sent) prime runs a configuration template to update the description on that port with the 802.1x name of the client that authenticated ?

I can think of a few ways to do this using perl and snmp but am hoping that there is a way to do this with PI.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Hi Chris,

Prime can sense the TRAP but based on traps prime automatically create or push configuration template is not possible as far as I know.

Thanks-

If your PI is integrated with ISE, ISE will provide the name of the authenticated user to Prime for correlation with connected ports. It can't update port description as a result but you do still have the information available.
