These are the Roles attributed to the client depending on the WLAN configuration,  this is usually seen when using a Local User database or the Zero IT/BYOD combination for wireless authentication, this can be found under the CONFIGURATION >>>> ROLES option  on the ZoneDirector

And 802.1x can send back a Vendor Specific Attribute with a 'Role' value, that defines what
WLAN(s) a user can access, as specified under Configure/Roles.

Thanks for your responses. What prompted this question was Adminstrator created a guest pass for Ramprakash.

When Ramprakash got connected to guest WLAN, all ok. his role showed as Administrator which is NOT making sense. Are you guys with me?

I am using ZD1100 and 9.8.2.

It's possible that when Ramprakash was created as user, it was assigned with Administrator role. You can check the role assigned in Configure >> Users.
