Import Devices to Clearpass Guest Device Repository

Hi All

 

We currently use a static host list to MAC auth some clients, but I would like to make use of the Clearpass guest device repository instead. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to import devices in bulk, I can see that it is possible to import user accounts from a CSV etc. but can't see a way to do this for devices.

 

Thanks

Yes, if you go to Manage Devices > More Options > Export Guest Accounts and
then CSV, take a look at the file for the format. (Be sure you have at least
one device already in the database)

Make the sure the CSV contains the attribute mac_auth and that the value is 1. For example:

 

Full Name,Account Role,MAC Address,mac_auth
Client1,CLIENT-VLAN,aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa,1
Client2,CLIENT-VLAN,bb-bb-bb-bb-bb-bb,1
Printer1,PRINTER-VLAN,cc-cc-cc-cc-cc-cc,1

 

See the guest userguide page 77:

Hi,

I would like to know whether doing this will consume any guest licenses?

 

Thanks.

Re: Import Devices to Clearpass Guest Device Repository

Is there a way to use the Import function to delete devices in bulk?  I would like to delete devices that have not been seen on the network in a period of time (probably 1 year).
