ClearPass features which require PEFNG license in controller?

Hi all,

 

I'm planning ClearPass deployment with Aruba WLAN setup but without firewall licensenses. What features do you know what I can't do without the PEFNG?

 

For example Guest features such as self registration, email validation etcc seem to rely on user roles. Are these possible do deploy any other way?

PEFNG is required if you want to do custom user-roles or modify user roles.

That's correct but that didn't really answer the question what was how this affects ClearPass deployments.

 

Are custom roles required when doing Guest features for example?

Custom roles are not required when doing guest access but it limits your flexibility.  When guest users authenticate successfully, they will have the same open role, so you cannot restrict where they go and what they do with firewall policies.  If you need to restrict guest user traffic, this will be problematic.

Do you know can I do sponsor based guest access control or self registration in captive portal?

Thank you so much. I'll keep doing some testing and see how it will work out.
