HM-NG -- upload user list as CSV? and PPSK distribution?

  • 1
  • Question
  • Updated 12 months ago
I am new to HM and hope someone more familiar can shed some light:

1)  I've seen others discuss importing a user list via CSV.  Is that functionality supported in HM-NG?  This seems like it would be a necessary feature for an enterprise grade solution that could consist of dozens or hundreds of users. 

2)  It does not appear I can create an authentication or self-registration captive web portal, as my mouse curser becomes a red circle with a line through it.  Does this require additional licensing? 

3)  In the user group configuration there are options at the bottom for email or SMS delivery of PPSKs, but like #2 above I am not able to select these options.  Does this require additional licensing?

1) Bulk key creation (via import or net new accounts) is not currently available. We are working on new ways to bulk create keys. Stay tuned.

2) Both of those Captive Web Portal options are available on open SSIDs. What are your SSID settings?

3) the lastest release of NG contains both on-AP PPSKs (called Device in the User group) or cloud-based PPSKs (called Service, similar to our previous ID Manager service). Email and SMS delivery is currently available for Service PPSKs.

Thanks for the quick response, Andrew! 

1) Looking forward to it. 
2) You nailed it, I did not have the SSID set as open.  I will experiment and let you know if any other questions arise over the next few days.
3) Perfect.

Any update on this? I'm doing a migration and I'm not looking forward to creating 797 users manually..... . . . .

There is an Import button on the Users screen. You can find a link to the template from there. This import option can be used with user groups that use Cloud credentials (not local/device). The password/PPSK will be created for you.

Will there ever be a bulk user import for adding user groups that use a local/device credentials?  Just curious.

Hello Chris,

You can request this feature by using the feedback option on the right hand side of the screen in your NG hive manager. This feedback goes directly to our engineers so they can build any feature requests you may have in to future releases of the NG HiveManager. 

Hope this helps!
