    Hi,
    quick question,
    When using the cppm built in PKI/onboarding to install a client cert, from a liense point of view , do we need a license for every client that has a cert installed, or  for every client authenticated onto the net using the cert ?

    So
    10,000 users are configured to use eap-tls via cppm onboard, but only  1000 are logged on at a time, license  = 10,000 or license = 1000

    From the license conversion technote:
    "Onboard license consumption beginning with ClearPass 6.7 is based upon an active certificate per-user model. For example, if a given user has four devices with an active certificate each, only one Onboard license is required."

    If 10k users are enrolled with a certificate (which is still valid/not revoked), but only 1000 are active at one time, you will still need 10k Onboard licenses.
    Licenses like Access and OnGuard follow the concurrent active devices model.
