CPPM and Guest licences, when not authenticating users of the ClearPass Captive Portal...?

Hi,

 

With Clearpass, if you want to use the Captive Portal, but only to require users to accept Terms and Conditions (no authentication involved) – does this consume any ClearPass licences (Just CPPM or CPPM and CP Guest)?

 

If you want to also gather per-user information (maybe their email and/or mobile number) – what effect does this have on licensing (because you are then starting to store per-user info)?

 

Thanks, in advance...

Click through consumes just a CPPM license.

Registration (capturing data) uses both a Guest (or enterprise) and base CPPM license.

I was under the impression that a single click accept page would still use a guest licence.

 

That page is still essentially using the Clearpass Guest service.

 

Easy enough to test though and see if it consumes a licence.


If my post is helpful please give kudos, or mark as solved if it answers your post.

Depends on how you set it up ;-)
