I can answer myself after some tests:
#  ### Receive Access-Request packets
recv Access-Request {
        update control {
        &Password.cleartext := %redis(hget, radcheck:%{User-Name}, Cleartext-Password)

Subject: Redis in Freeradius v4

I was using redis module for authentication using this in authorization section of the default site:

        update control {
        Cleartext-Password := "%{redis:hget radcheck:%{User-Name} \"Cleartext-Password\"}"

However, this no longer works in  FreeRADIUS version 4.0.32319 (git #f7582607)

What would be the new mechanism to achieve above?

I am trying  to move to v4 because the redis sqlippool module.

Thanks in advance.
