After you create SNMP users, you must grant permission, using View Access Control Model (VACM) to allow the user to view SNMP objects. This command is used to display information about user VACMs.

Syntax   snmp-vacm-show [user-type rouser|rwuser] [user-name snmp-user user-name] [oid-restrict oid-restrict-string] [auth|no-auth] [priv|no-priv]

user-type rouser|rwuser

Specify the type of permission to grant to the user. You can select from read-only or read-write.

user-name snmp-user user-name

Specify the user name to apply the permission.

oid-restrict oid-restrict-string

Specify any OID restrictions. The parameter, oid-restrict, is an optional argument that specifies a MIB sub-tree that the view is restricted. In other words, if you specify an OID, only that OID and the descendants in the tree are visible in this view.


Specify if the user is authenticated or not.


Specify if the view is private or not.
