Description (partial)

Impose 24 character local net user restriction on WLC GUI

Currently WLC GUI>>Security>>AAA>>Local Net User>>New allows to create username upto 38 characters. Tested on and .

While the actual documented local net user character restriction for username and password is 24 characters. WLC CLI imposes this restriction but GUI allows to create user with 38 characters.

This causes "Inventory Collection" failure issues on Prime Infrastructure when a user enters username greater than 24 characters via GUI.
