PEFNG License needed for 802.1X authenticated SSID with multiple user roles?

Dear all,

 

at a customer site we are about to install the following deployment:

~50 APs (305)

~Virtual Controller (AOS 8.3.0.1)

~Clearpass 6.7.4

We want to deploy a single SSID (based on 802.1X EAP-PEAP) where users from multiple departments can authenticate (via Clearpass and AD). Based on their group affiliation on the AD, they are moved to different VLANs which are terminated at the central Firewall.

 

Do we need PEFNG licenses on the controller to depict the roles on Clearpass derived from group affiliations from the AD? Or is a normal AP License enough for that usecase?

 

Best regards :)

You should be able to return the user vlan in an enforcement profile using the Aruba-User-Vlan radius attribure on clearpass. That will return a different VLAN without using a role. That specifically would not require the PEFNG license.
