TLS cert from clearpass

Hi Forum,


Is there any way I can generate a user cert manually from cppm onboard admin console and install it on a client device without the quick connect app?? I'm trying to see what other options I have available to distribute cert to some clients.

Yes. Onboard > Management and Control > View by Certificate > Generate a new
certificate signing request. Be sure to select TLS client cert.

As a side note, starting with ClearPass 6.5, you can configure Web based Provisioning to allow 'unsupported devices' to manually onboard. If Onboard detects an unsupported device, it will offer the user to generate and download a certificate that can be installed on the device by the end-user.

This might be a useful alternative for the manual certificate creation by the admin.
