Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) is a security policy management platform that provides secure access to network resources. Cisco ISE allows enterprises to gather real-time contextual information from networks, users, and devices. An administrator can then use this information to make proactive governance decisions by creating access control policies for the various network elements, including access switches, Cisco Wireless Controllers, Virtual Private Network (VPN) gateways, and data center switches. Cisco ISE acts as the policy manager in the Cisco TrustSec solution and supports TrustSec software-defined segmentation.

Cisco ISE is available on Secure Network Server appliances with different performance characterizations, and also as software that can be run on a virtual machine (VM). Note that you can add more appliances to a deployment for better performance.

Cisco ISE has a scalable architecture that supports standalone and distributed deployments, but with centralized configuration and management. It also enables the configuration and management of distinct personas and services, thereby giving you the ability to create and apply services where needed, in a network, but operate the Cisco ISE deployment as a complete and coordinated system.

For more information about the features that are supported in this Cisco ISE release, see the Cisco Identity Services Engine Administrator Guide.

To access documentation on, go to End-User Documentation.

What is New in Cisco ISE, Release 3.0?

Cisco ISE Release 3.0 uses Essentials, Advantage, and Premier licenses.

For more information about the licenses that are supported in this Cisco ISE release, see the Chapter “Licensing” in the Cisco Identity Services Engine Administrator Guide.

The new features are organized by according to the license required for the features.

Essentials License

The following features require the Cisco ISE Essentials license.

Debug Wizard by Function

The Debug Wizard contains predefined debug templates that you can use to troubleshoot issues on ISE nodes. You can configure the Debug Profiles and the Debug Logs.

Business Outcome: Cisco TAC can now enable the debug logs easily over multiple nodes in an Cisco ISE deployment. This feature helps in quicker troubleshooting.

SAML SSO for Multi-Factor Authentication

Edit the authentication context value in SAML request headings to support multifactor authentications.

Business Outcome: SAML authentication will now support multifactor authentications.

Support for Cisco ISE as a VM Deployment on VMware Cloud on AWS

The process for installing Cisco ISE as a VM on VMware Cloud on AWS is same as that for installing Cisco ISE virtual deployment. Ensure that the security group policies are configured on VMware Cloud to enable reachability to on-premises deployment. See Supported Virtual Environments.

Business Outcome: Cisco ISE as a Virtual Machine can be hosted on the software-defined data center (SDDC) provided by VMware Cloud on AWS.

Multiple Attributes Lookup for ODBC Identity Store

Click the Advanced Settings option while adding an ODBC identity store to use the attributes under the following dictionaries as input parameters in the Fetch Attributes stored procedure (in addition to the username and password):


  • Device

  • Network Access (AuthenticationMethod, Device IP Address, EapAuthentication, EapTunnel, ISE Host Name, Protocol, UserName, VN, and WasMachineAuthenticated)

You can configure the stored procedures to retrieve the following output parameters from the ODBC database:

  • ACL

  • Security Group

  • VLAN (name or number)

  • Web-redirect ACL

  • Web-redirect portal name

Business Outcome: You can use these attributes to configure the authorization profiles. For example, you can configure an authorization profile to use the VLAN that is returned from the ODBC database based on the specified input attributes (such as MAC address, username, called-station-ID, or device location), instead of manually specifying the VLAN for each authorization profile.

Cisco ISE API Gateway

Cisco ISE API gateway is an API management solution, which acts as a single entry point to multiple Cisco ISE Service APIs to provide better security and traffic management. The API requests from the external clients are routed to the API gateway on Cisco ISE. The requests are further forwarded to the Cisco ISE nodes where service APIs are running, based on the rules configured on the API Gateway.

Business Outcome: Enhanced conversion of information exchange and cross-domain automation for a Cisco Software Defined Access (SDA) fabric in combination with Cisco ACI infrastructure.

Certificate Fingerprinting

The certificate fingerprinting process is used to evaluate immediate issuer fingerprint SHA256 certificate with the trusted certificates. This enforces a secured mechanism for multiple certificates to support different domains. Certificate fingerprinting also allows you to lock the trusted certificates for the 802.1x protocol.

Business Outcome: Several domains are supported by multiple trusted certificates.

MSRPC Protocol for Passive ID Service

From Cisco ISE Release 3.0 onwards, you can use MS-Eventing API or Microsoft Remote Procedure Call (MSRPC) protocol for Passive Identity. Use the MSRPC protocol to establish node communication and monitor heartbeats between nodes in Cisco ISE. This option is available in addition to the WMI protocol for the Passive ID service.

The MSRPC protocol promotes a reliable mechanism when Cisco ISE or Cisco ISE-PIC collects and monitors the events from several domain controllers. It also reduces latency on the Active Directory Domain Controllers user login events.

Business Outcome: Provides a reliable mechanism for monitoring DC events.

Health Check

Cisco ISE Release 3.0 introduces an on-demand health check option to diagnose all the nodes in your deployment. Running a health check on all the nodes prior to any operation helps identify critical issues, if any, that may cause downtime or blocker. Health Check provides the working status of all the dependent components. On failure of a component, it immediately provides troubleshooting recommendations to resolve the issue for a seamless execution of the operation.

Ensure that you run Health Check before initiating the upgrade process.

Business Outcome: Identify critical issues to avoid downtime or blockers.

Telemetry Updates

Additional network statistics are collected.

Business Outcome: The more information you can gather about customer networks, the better job you can do analyzing how to improve your products.

TCP Dump Enhancements

You now have more control over TCP dump files. You can also run TCP dump on additional interfaces.

Business Outcome: Collecting data about TCP traffic is now easier.

Resource Owner Password Credentials Flow to Authenticate Users with Azure Active Directory

The Resource Owner Password Credentials (ROPC) flow allows Cisco ISE to carry out authorization and authentication in a network with cloud-based identity providers. This is a controlled introduction feature. We recommend that you thoroughly test this feature in a test environment before using it in a production environment.

Business Outcome: The ROPC flow allows Cisco ISE to authorize and authenticate Azure Active Directory users.

Interactive Help

Interactive Help provides tips and step-by-step guidance to complete tasks with ease.

Business Outcome: This helps the end users to easily understand the work flow and complete their tasks with ease.

Advantage License

The following features require the Cisco ISE Advantage License.

New pxGrid Pages

The new pxGrid interface has new pages that separate pxGrid v1 and pxGrid v2. There is also a new Summary window with session and client information.

Business Outcome: Improves workflow when managing pxGrid sessions.


pxGrid 1.0, which uses legacy Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is in maintenance mode, and will be deprecated soon. We introduced pxGrid 2.0 in Cisco ISE, Release 2.4. pxGrid 2.0 uses REST and Websocket protocols, which are a simple and standardized application-to-application communications interface. We encourage partners to switch their pxGrid client implementations to these new protocols.

For more information about why we recommend a switch to pxGrid 2.0, see Welcome to Learning Cisco Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid)

Configuration of Baseline Policies from Desktop Device Manager

When you upgrade to Cisco ISE Release 3.0, we recommend that you do not use root patches to select configuration baseline policies from the connected Desktop Device Manager servers.

You can also verify Windows endpoints with Device Identifiers instead of MAC addresses for greater accuracy, when dongles, docking stations, or MAC address randomization techniques are in use.

Business Outcome: You can check for endpoint compliance using configuration baseline policies created in Desktop Device Manager servers. Use device identifiers instead of MAC addresses for greater accuracy in endpoint identification.

Cisco ISE ACI-SDA Integration with VN Awareness

Cisco ISE Release 3.0 provides enhanced conversion of information exchange and cross-domain automation for a Cisco Software Defined Access (SDA) fabric in combination with Cisco ACI infrastructure. This implementation supports the exchange and translation of EPG and SGT information, extension of SDA Virtual Networks(VNs) into the Cisco ACI fabric, SDA and ACI fabric data plane automation, along with the exchange of IP-SGT bindings and sending the bindings to pxGrid and SXP domains.

Business Outcome: Better security and traffic management.

Minimum Version of Antivirus and Antimalware

From Cisco ISE Release 3.0 onwards, you can create a posture policy to set a minimum version of antivirus and antimalware for the endpoints in your network. This policy ensures that the endpoints comply with the minimum version of antivirus and antimalware of your network policy. It also automatically updates the condition with new versions of antivirus and antimalware, thus reducing the manual effort required to revise the condition.

Business Outcome: Enhanced security because the endpoints comply with the network policy.

Posture Session Sharing

Posture status is shared between PSNs. The status is not configurable; it is always on.

Business Outcome: Client connections do not need to rerun posture, when switching to a different PSN.

Agentless Posture

This new posture type delivers an agent to the client through SSH, and optionally removes the client when posture is complete. AnyConnect is not required.

Business Outcome: Lower footprint, and temporary posture agent is not visible to the customer.

Multi-DNAC Support

Cisco DNA Center systems cannot scale to more than the range of 25 to 100 thousand endpoints. Cisco ISE can scale to two million endpoints. Currently, you can only integrate one Cisco DNA Center system with one Cisco ISE system. Large Cisco ISE deployments can benefit by integrating multiple DNA Center clusters with a single Cisco ISE. Cisco now supports multiple Cisco DNA center clusters per Cisco ISE deployment, also known as Multi-DNAC.

Business Outcome: This feature for the Access Control app in Cisco DNA Center allows you to integrate up to four Cisco DNA Center clusters with a single Cisco ISE system.

Premier License

The following features require Cisco ISE Premier License.

Endpoint Scripts Wizard

The Endpoint Scripts Wizard allows you to run scripts on connected endpoints to carry out administrative tasks that comply with your organization’s requirements. This includes tasks such as uninstalling obsolete software, starting or terminating processes or applications, and enabling or disabling specific services.

Business Outcome: Easily carry out administrative tasks on connected endpoints to comply with your organization’s requirements.

Known Limitations and Workarounds

LDAP Server Reconfiguration after Upgrade


The primary Hostname or IP is not updated which causes authentication failures. This is because while upgarding the Cisco ISE deployment, the deployment IDs tend to reset.


When you enable the Specify server for each ISE node option in the Connection window. To view this window, click the Menu icon () and choose Administration > Identity Management > External Identity Sources > LDAP > Add or choose and an existing server, and then upgrade your Cisco ISE deployment which has PSNs, the deployment IDs tend to reset.


Reconfigure the LDAP Server settings for each node. For more information, see LDAP Identity Source Settings section in the Administrative Access to Cisco ISE Using an External Identity Store chapter in the "Cisco Identity Services Engine Administrator Guide, Release 2.4".

Online Help in Japanese

If you have configured your localization settings to enable Japanese in your Cisco ISE, note that the Online Help does not include information on new features introduced in this release. See Cisco ISE Administration Guide, Release 3.0 for information on these features.

Upgrade Information


If you have installed a hot patch, roll back the hot patch before applying an upgrade patch.

Upgrading to Release 3.0

You can directly upgrade to Release 3.0 from the following Cisco ISE releases:

  • 2.4

  • 2.6

  • 2.7

If you are on a version earlier than Cisco ISE, Release 2.4, you must first upgrade to one of the releases listed above, and then upgrade to Release 3.0.


We recommend that you upgrade to the latest patch in the existing version before starting the upgrade.

License Changes

The licenses that are used for Cisco ISE Releases 2.x, such as Base, Plus, and Apex, have been replaced with new license types. Cisco ISE Release 3.0 uses Essentials, Advantage, and Premier licenses. See the Chapter “Licensing” in the Cisco Identity Services Engine Administrator Guide.

You must convert your existing smart or traditional licenses to the new license type through the Cisco Smart Software Manager (CSSM), to enable license consumption in Cisco ISE Release 3.0.

Upgrade Procedure Prerequisites

  • Run the Upgrade Readiness Tool (URT) before an ISE software upgrade in order to check if the configured data can be upgraded to the required ISE version. Most upgrade failures occur because of data upgrade issues. The URT is designed to validate the data before the actual upgrade, and reports and tries to fix the issues, wherever possible. The URT can be downloaded from the Cisco ISE Download Software Center.

  • We recommend that you install all the relevant patches before beginning the upgrade.

For more information, see the Cisco Identity Services Engine Upgrade Guide.


After installation, when you log in to the Admin portal for the first time, the Cisco ISE Telemetry banner is displayed. Using this feature, Cisco ISE securely collects nonsensitive information about your deployment, network access devices, profiler, and other services that you are using. This data is used to provide better services and more features in the forthcoming releases. By default, telemetry is enabled. To disable or modify the account information, In the Cisco ISE GUI, click the Menu icon () and choose Administration > Settings > Network Settings Diagnostics > Telemetry. The account is unique to each deployment. Each admin user need not provide it separately.

Telemetry provides valuable information about the status and capabilities of Cisco ISE. Telemetry is used by Cisco to improve appliance lifecycle management for IT teams who have deployed Cisco ISE. Collecting this data helps the product teams serve customers better. This data and related insights enable Cisco to proactively identify potential issues, improve services and support, facilitate discussions to gather additional value from new and existing features, and assist IT teams with inventory report of license entitlement and upcoming renewals.

It may take up to 24 hours after the feature is disabled for Cisco ISE to stop sharing telemetry data.

Types of data collected include Product Usage Telemetry and Cisco Support Diagnostics.

Cisco ISE Integration with Cisco Digital Network Architecture Center

Cisco ISE can integrate with Cisco DNA Center. For information about configuring Cisco ISE to work with Cisco DNA Center, see the Cisco DNA Center documentation.

For information about Cisco ISE compatibility with Cisco DNA Center, see Cisco SD-Access Compatibility Matrix.

Cisco AI Endpoint Analytics

Cisco AI Endpoint Analytics is a solution on Cisco DNA Center that improves endpoint profiling fidelity. It provides fine-grained endpoint identification and assigns labels to various endpoints. Information gathered through deep packet inspection, and probes from sources like Cisco ISE, Cisco SD-AVC, and network devices, is analyzed for endpoint profiling.

Cisco AI Endpoint Analytics also uses artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to intuitively group endpoints with similar attributes. IT administrators can review such groups and assign labels to them. These endpoint labels are then available in Cisco ISE if your Cisco ISE account is connected to an on-premise Cisco DNA Center.

These endpoint labels from Cisco AI Endpoint Analytics can be used by Cisco ISE administrators to create custom authorization policies. You can provide the right set of access privileges to endpoints or endpoint groups through such authorization policies.

Download and Install a New Patch

To obtain the patch file that is necessary to apply a patch to Cisco ISE, log in to the Cisco Download Software site at (you will be required to provide your login credentials), navigate to Security > Access Control and Policy > Cisco Identity Services Engine > Cisco Identity Services Engine Software, and save a copy of the patch file to your local machine.

For instructions on how to apply the patch to your system, see the "Install a Software Patch" section in the Cisco Identity Services Engine Administrator Guide.

For instructions on how to install a patch using CLI, see the "Patch Install" section in the Cisco Identity Services Engine CLI Reference Guide.


When installing Release 2.4 Patch 4 and later, CLI services will be temporarily unavailable during kernel upgrade. If the CLI is accessed during this time, the CLI displays the Stub Library could not be opened error message. However, after patch installation is complete, CLI services will be available again.


The Caveats section includes the bug ID and a short description of the bug. For details on the symptoms, conditions, and workaround for a specific caveat, use the Cisco Bug Search Tool (BST). The bug IDs are sorted alphanumerically.


The Open Caveats sections lists the open caveats that apply to the current release and might apply to releases earlier than Cisco ISE 3.0. A caveat that is open for an earlier release and is still unresolved applies to all future releases until it is resolved.

The BST, which is the online successor to the Bug Toolkit, is designed to improve effectiveness of network risk management and device troubleshooting. You can search for bugs based on product, release, or keyword, and aggregate key data such as bug details, product, and version. For more details on the tool, see the Help page located at
