Clearpass + Aruba Instant + Self-sponsoring

  • 1.  Clearpass + Aruba Instant + Self-sponsoring

    Posted Jul 12, 2016 04:06 AM

    Hello community, I was configuring an scenario with a cluster of Aruba Instant, Clearpass 6.4 and a SSID with Guest Self-Registration and Self-Sponsoring (grace-period of some minutes for looking at the email).


    I have seen a guide that describes a similar scenario but the principal difference is that uses a Aruba Controller instead of a Instant cluster. The guide is:

    I can't follow this guide because the options in the controller / Aruba Instant are not similar. There is any other guide with the scenario described?

    Thank you very much,

    Best Regards.

    Do you want them to change VLAN once authenticated or just same vlan? 


    You can create a guest SSID and use the authentication option external captive portal and add the clearpass guest url there.

    I don't really need to use different VLAN.
    Yes, I have made a Guest Self-registration and a Guest Self-sponsorship with the Aruba Instant in combination with Clearpasst (using the way you describe, external auth) but the real resultat that I need is:

    -- User connects to the guest ssid.

    -- Instant AP redirects to the Guest-Self registration page.

    -- Clearpass send an email to the address that user typed.

    -- User have a role that permit navigation during 10 minutes, grace period for navigate to the webmail and validate the connection (self-sponsorship).


    I don't know how to do the grace-period of 10 minutes without using a Aruba Controller (Change of Authority feature).

    Thank you,

    Best Regards

    I am the author of that original guide.  It was written for cppm a few versions back.  Things have changed a bit through the versions and this can be achieved much easier.  Please see this more recent and excellent guide here.  It is based on IAP as well.  Enjoy. :-)
