Guess account creation via meeting invite?



We are going to deploy ClearPass in our environment very shortly.  We are setting it up initially where the guest fills in the form and the sponsor/host needs to approve before the guest has access to the internet.


We have been asked to investigate if it is possible that in the meeting invite that there is a link for where the guest can pre-register for an account for when they are onsite for the meeting (maybe for the entire day of the meeting even if it is only scheduled for 1 hour) and it is pre-approved.


Not sure if anyone else has implemented this or something similar.  If we were a small company and not so many guests then creating the accounts manually internally would not be an issue, but we are a global company with many guests so we are wishing to automate this process as much as possible - at some stage we will be looking at a global 'visitor' system but that is probably a long way off yet.

Re: Guess account creation via meeting invite?

By default, there is a guest registration link on ClearPass where guests can request/create their own accounts with sponsor approval.  The link would have to be available over the internet, however, for guests to request accounts before they came onsite.  Without making it available over the internet, you could mention to the guests that they can request accounts onsite from the link in the invite...

Re: Guess account creation via meeting invite?

Thanks for the feedback.  This is what I suspected would be the solution, but just wanted to check just in case I missed something or that another solution existed.
