Aruba ClearPass integration

In this article

Aruba’s ClearPass is a way for you to easily provide Wi-Fi network access to your visitors and employees. It securely provisions network access with context-aware policies that you can control and configure.

How does this integration work?

Envoy sends visitor information to ClearPass, which then provisions temporary Wi-Fi access credentials to your network. Upon sign-in, the visitor will receive an email (if you collect visitor email addresses) or text message (if you collect visitor phone numbers) with username and password information for Wi-Fi access. This integration is enabled per location.

Note: for this integration to work, you must collect either visitor email addresses or phone numbers at sign-in. Learn more about how to configure your Envoy sign-in fields.

Enabling the Envoy + Aruba ClearPass integration

Note: You’ll need to be an admin on your Aruba ClearPass account to complete this integration. Either become an admin or ask your admin for help before completing these steps:

  1. Go to Integrations > All integrations.
  2. Under Envoy Labs, find Aruba, and click “Install.”
  3. Copy your Envoy Plugin Install Token and use it to configure your Envoy ClearPass Extension following this guide.
  4. Complete the ClearPass Extension setup in Aruba ClearPass. You will receive a ClearPass tenantName.
  5. Back in Envoy settings, paste your tenantName into the ClearPass tenantName field.
  6. Optional: If you have multiple ClearPass accounts, you can add a second tenantName in the Secondary ClearPass tenantName field.
    • If you add a secondary tenantName, you must also select the locations to associate with the secondary tenantName.
    • All locations not selected in the Secondary location mapping field will be associated with your primary tenantName.
  7. Click “Next step.”
  8. Once the Envoy ClearPass Extension is activated, it will automatically begin provisioning Wi-Fi credentials for visitors. You can see the status of the integration and any failures that have occurred on your enabled integrations page under Aruba ClearPass.
