Sponsored self-registration is way of allowing guests to self-register and not give them full access until a sponsor approves the account. When registration form is submitted, the guest account will be created with default expiration, role and in disabled state. The registration receipt page will display a message stating the account requires approval and the login button is disabled. An email is sent to sponsor with a link to Clearpass server, which displays summary of the user as well as Confirm and Reject buttons. Upon confirmation, the guest will have full access. Upon rejection, the account is immediately deleted.
Clearpass configured with guest self registration to allow guests to authenticate to guest network.
