Clearpass device registration (formerly MACTrac)



I am looking for documentation on "Clearpass device registration" . I am working with a University who have a requirement that students/staff can authenticate non 802.1x devices (game consoles, chrome casts etc..) onto eduroam. I understand we can set up a self service portal where students can register these devices themselves but struggling to find user guides on it. I have seen the below document referenced on Airheads but the link no longer works.


thanks in advance

Re: Clearpass device registration (formerly MACTrac)

That referenced document was outdated. The basic steps to set up (self) device registration are:

- Allow users to log in to the Guest portal with the Device Registration Operator Profile. See this video how to configure that.

- If needed change or create your own Device Registration Operator Profile. Some useful information here.

- Use the Guest Device Repository as MACAuth authentication source or authorization source of other authentication types.

- If you create an external captive portal redirect for unknown/unregistered devices, the MAC address will be automatically filled, which is useful for devices that have a browser as you can register those from the device itself.

- For other devices, your users can go to https://your.clear.pass/guest (replace your.clear.pass with the hostname of your ClearPass) and register headless devices and manage existing devices.


Does this provide enough guidance?
