Set endpoint attribute during onboard

Hi community,


Is it possible to set an endpoint attribute during the onboard process of that endpoint (for example, set endpoint's username equals to the user that is onboarding)? I want to use that attribute for enforcement decision later when the endpoint does 802.1X authentication to the wireless network.


Please give me some advice.


Thank you,

Yes, you can. Use a ClearPass Enttity Update enforcement profile.

Hi Tim,


It didn't work though I can see the status was ACCEPT. Below is my configuration and the log messages:












Could you please verify if this is a valid configuration? I guess the profile was not applied due to no End-Host Identifier available during onboard.


Thank you,
