Clearpass Guest repository format

Does anyone know what format the guest database on Clearness is. Can this be queried using LDAP queries from other devices? I have a colleague that would like to explore the possibility of writing an app to query the guest user repository and process the results.

It cannot be queried using LDAP, but a read-only copy can be made available over SQL by setting the appexternal password by going to Administration> Server Configuration> Cluster-Wide Settings> General> Appexternal password.  Any SQL program like pgadmin will be able to query it with the username appexternal and whatever password is set there.

Re: Clearpass Guest repository format

Does changing that password impact any internal ClearPass processes or is
it exclusively for external access?

It will have no affect on ClearPass unless you have a split cluster design, where you have used appexternal account and password to gather information from the other cluster.

Keep in mind this account has limited access to the database.
