ID Manager features available in NG?

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
I have used ID Manager for guest self registration using their own device, but I would like to know is this feature and other ID Manager features now available as standard from the new NG?
I understand that an iOS app is coming soon?

We have a customer who has trialed ID Manager last year, and would now like to use it.  If they can migrate from HMOL HM6 to NG, they would not need to purchase ID Manager, saving a significant cost for them.

A quick run down of the NG Guest management portal would be great.  I have used it briefly, for SMS PPSK delivery etc, and created logins for domain users. but not guest self registration.

thanks

Hi Jason,

As a starting point, please see; http://docs.aerohive.com/330000/docs/help/english/ng/Content/gui/configuration/configuring-wireless-...

All options should be described in this link. Please let us know if there are any questions.

Thanks Gary,
From that doc, I believe it will allow guest to self-register via a special SSID, then sign into the Guest SSID after that. I'm expecting this will be just how it was done in ID Manager.  So the guest can receive their own PPSK by self-registration.

If you selected Private PSK / Guests can self-register, then sign in. As an option, an employee can approve. select and enter the following:

Enable Employee Approval: (Create credentials for guests to use to log in to your network to access the Internet.)

Guest Self-Registration SSID: Enter an SSID name for private PSK Guest Access; this name can be up to 32 characters long and can include spaces. (Guests can self-register using unique login credentials, then sign in to access the Internet through your wireless network. As an option, a sponsoring employee can approve the guest access. You can also allow guests to register themselves, and then sign in, with or without sponsoring employee approval.)

Hi Jason,

That is correct;

I just created it as a test in my lab. the workflow is very simple actually;



I then created the SSID as per the requirements. This creates an SSID for registration and an SSID for authentication;



CLI;
AH-285fc0#show run | inc ssid

security-object Self-Reg_Register ppsk-web-server bind-to-ppsk-ssid Self-Reg_Login

ssid Self-Reg_Register

ssid Self-Reg_Register security-object Self-Reg_Register

ssid Self-Reg_Register security mac-filter Self-Reg_Register

ssid Self-Reg_Register 11g-rate-set 11-basic 6 9 12 18 24 36 48 54

ssid Self-Reg_Register multicast conversion-to-unicast auto

ssid Self-Reg_Register client-monitor-policy default_Policy

ssid Self-Reg_Login

ssid Self-Reg_Login security-object Self-Reg_Login

ssid Self-Reg_Login multicast conversion-to-unicast auto

ssid Self-Reg_Login client-monitor-policy default_Policy

Thanks Gary,

Something else to clarify. Regarding importing a CSV of users.  It doesn't appear possible to include their existing PPSKs, so they can be migrated seamlessly from HM6 to NG?
I understand that PPSK is not a field, like it was in HM6?



is there a way PPSKs can be imported.

thanks,
Jason

Hi Jason,

I'm afraid there is no way to do this right now. It's possibly on the roadmap for a future release but off the top of my head, i'm not sure when. I will look into it.

Kind Regards,
