Basic Objects Description Summary

Supplemental CLI Objects (Visible only if enabled): You can add, modify and delete Supplemental CLI objects. You can enter CLI commands on a ExtremeCloud IQ GUI page, and then update one or multiple devices simultaneously when you perform a complete configuration update of the network policy.

DHCP Server and Relay: You can add, edit, clone and delete DHCP Server and Relay objects.

IP Objects/Host Names: You can add, modify, and delete IP objects and host names. It is used in configuration settings for IP firewall policy rules, RADIUS servers, syslog servers, and SNMP servers.

MAC Objects or MAC OUIs: You can add, modify, and delete MAC objects or MAC OUIs (organizationally unique identifier). After a MAC object is assigned to a device, it can be grouped to a specific hive. In QoS traffic classification and marking policies, you can prioritize traffic based on its OUI.

  • A MAC (Media Access Control) address is a 48-bit number typically written in hexadecimal notation (that is, in 12 hexadecimal digits) that provides a unique address for each client device. An OUI (organizationally unique identifier) is the first 24 bits (that is, the first six hexadecimal digits) of a MAC address.

Notification Templates: You can add, modify, and delete notification templates. There are two default notification templates created for you in ExtremeCloud IQ, an SMS template and an Email template. You can also configure customized notification templates for non-employees who need to obtain network access (for example, guests, contractors, and VIPs).

OS Objects: You can add, modify, and delete OS objects. Extreme Networks devices can reassign users to different user profiles based on several characteristics of their clients. The operating system of a client is one way to categorize a device (the other two are MAC address or OUI and device domain name).

  • ExtremeCloud IQ can identify these operating systems: Windows, Windows Phone, Mac OS, iPad, iPhone, iOS Device, Android, Symbian, Blackberry, Chrome.

VLANs: You can add, modify, and delete VLAN(virtual local area network) profiles. You can apply VLANs to devices and define classification rules. A VLAN object consists of its name and one or more parameters such as the VLAN ID, type and value.
