Using the Cisco ISE Failure Reasons Editor


This appendix provides a procedure you can use to access the Cisco ISE Failure Reasons Editor. The Cisco ISE Failure Reason Editor is an option in the Cisco ISE user interface that provides information about all of the failure reasons that could be encountered. You can use this to check on those that are returned as output from a Get Failure Reason Mapping call when using the Cisco ISE Query troubleshooting API.

The Cisco ISE Failure Reasons Editor lets you access the complete list of failure reasons defined by the Cisco ISE software that apply to Cisco Monitoring ISE node operations. The following procedure lets you view or edit the list of defined failure reasons. You must log into the Cisco ISE user interface of the target Cisco Monitoring ISE node to view and access the failure reasons. For details about logging in, see Verifying a Cisco Monitoring ISE Node.


Note For more information about Cisco ISE failure reasons or for general troubleshooting issues, see Chapter 22, "Monitoring and Troubleshooting", and Appendix D, "Troubleshooting Cisco ISE" in the Cisco Identity Services Engine User Guide, Release 1.1.1
