Approve or deny a request

When a guest connects to your network and selects self registration from the Registration page in the portal, a request for an account is sent to FortiNAC. The request is sent via email to a sponsor for approval, however an Administrator can go to the self registration requests View and approve or deny any pending requests.

  1. A guest connects to the network, opens a browser and is taken to the Registration page. The guest submits a request for access.
  2. The sponsor receives an email indicating that a guest has requested an account. Within the email there is either a Login link or Approve and Deny links depending on the configuration of the self registration page in the portal.
  3. If the email contains Approve or Deny links, the sponsor clicks the appropriate link. The Guest receives a message indicating that he has been approved or denied. If the request is approved, the guest can login and use the network.
  4. If the email contains a Login link, the sponsor clicks Login and is taken to a login window for the FortiNAC admin UI.
  5. The sponsor logs in and the self registration requests view is displayed with the appropriate request record opened.
  6. The sponsor can add a message indicating what the Guest should do or the reason for a denied request. This message is displayed to the guest in the browser.
  7. The sponsor clicks Approve or Deny and the response is sent to the Guest.
  8. If approved, the Guest can access the network.
