I m trying to setup External Captive Portal on my aruba controller ..External captive portal sends a wellcome page after succes auth..This wellcome page includes a text( for example "authenticated" ) , Controller should be parse this wellcome page and find this text then assign authenticated role to user..I could not find Where can I define "authentication text" on my controller.What is your recommendation? Which other methods do you recommend to use for External captive portal on controller..Do I have to use other methods ( xml-api, amigopod ,etc. )
By the way, I can define the authentication text in the Instant AP..
Aruba controller 620, Aruba OS ArubaOS_6xx_188.8.131.52_31229

for external captive portal to work, the external entity has to indicate a message to the controller on the change of role (authentication status).
Yes amigopod/xml-api is the popular and supported ways for external captive portal authentication.
Do you already have an external captive portal server (other then amigopod) ?

Yes our customer is using a own external captive portal.This captive portal is not a commercial or open source application..They develop a web application run as captive portal.
Is controller able to parse wellcome html page returned by external captive portal and find specfied text..
I think controller
Actually We want to use internal captive portal, but our Customer didnt accept PAP auth between controller and IAS radius..

no the controller doesnt parse the welcome page in the way its expected.
Why dont you try setting up IPSec between controller and Radius server, which would provide security
- unless the sec-ops team of the customer barrs the PAP usage, the IPSec can provide security

Excuse me for my question again..So Our customer wait a solution..
I have no idea about relation between controller and external CP ( except any external CP in gw mode, amigopod )
How can I provide , the external captive portal indicate a message to the controller,
user login and guest login are disabled on captive portal profile.So authentication will be made by External captive portal..So How External CP turn a response to the controller?
Do I have to also provide establishing a communacation between NAS(controller) and radius server. Because we need a response from Radius to change the role..
If our customer dont want to use amigopod and has own captive portal app, What should be the relation between components( external captive portal, raidus server, controller ).
