Create new account roles on ClearPass Guest

Hello,

 

is it possible to have more than the three pre-defined account roles on ClearPass Guest?

 

By default, the role can either be Contractor, Guest or Employee.

 

How do the roles created in ClearPass Policy Manager (Configuration -> Identity -> Roles) correspond to the account roles in ClearPass Guest?

 

I am using ClearPass 6.1

 

Thanks for your help!

 

cheers,

Harald

Re: Create new account roles on ClearPass Guest

You can create other roles more and these options will show up under the account role to create a sponsor account in the ClearPass Guest

Follow these steps :

1- Add the new Role you would like to use

2 - Under the Guest Roles mapping add a new rule and add the new role

And then you should see it listed as an option

Viktor,

 

brilliant, thanks for your help! The missing link was the Role Mapping!

Re: Create new account roles on ClearPass Guest

Hello community,

 

after I have set this settings, the new account role isn´t listed under user creation or modify.

Forgot something else ?

 

Thanks for support.

 

We want to organize and sort the diffrent user groups with this option.

Oh I see the problem.

 

Only roles under the mapping "Guest Roles" will be pushed to GuestManager, why?

 

Maybe someone can explain the GroupStructure of CPPM ?

 

Thanks

Yes, in order to populate the guest role dropdown in CPG, you use the [Guest Roles] role map.

Re: Create new account roles on ClearPass Guest

Is there a way to change the role mapping meant for guest roles? I changed its name and the autopopulation function stopped working. Back to the original name works again. Am I missing some field were I must enter the role mapping name to use? No doc states I cannot change the role mapping name.

You need to duplicate the role map and then customize the new one.
