Re: SSID with Both MAC auth and 802.1x in ClearPass (Airheads Community Subscription Update)

I am new to ClearPass, so I am still feeling my way around the product. I am wondering why a rule couldn't be added to the enforcement policy to look at the mac address and then push the action to allow access if it is a match. If you have a lot of devices this would be ideal. For example the rule below:

Conditions
(Connection:Client-Mac-Address-Colon EQUALS xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx)

Actions
[Allow Access]

Just spitballing here, but is there any product/configuration that would allow you to integrate those MAC addresses into the same database that your .1X devices authenticate off of? Whereas .1X is used primarily via cert/credentials, a pre-registered device could match against an AD object associated with it, say.



Not sure if it's possible, but the thought occurred to me.
