Registration Approval (Version 8.8.2 and above)

Applies to the following Captive Portal Login Processes

  • Standard User
  • Guest
  • Custom

Note: This feature does not affect registration through any other process, such as Persistent Agent or WMI.

When registering through the portal and immediately following authentication of the user’s credentials, the device is placed in a "Pending Approval" state. Upon Administrator approval, the portal notifies the user and allows them to complete the Registration process for the device.

This feature is configured individually per login process. A host registration request may be configured to either be approved by:

  • An Administrator with Self Registration Request permissions
  • Any Administrator that belongs to a specified User group.

Administrators that belong to the group will be able to approve, regardless of their permissions. Administrators that do not belong to that group will be unable to approve.

Configure Registration Approval using the appropriate branches of the Registration section of the Content Editor:

  • Standard User Registration Approval
  • Guest Registration Approval
  • Customer Registration Approval
