Configures a guest management policy that redirects guest users to a registration portal upon association to a captive portal. Guest users are redirected to an internally (or) externally hosted registration page (registration.html) where previously, not-registered guest users can register. The internally hosted captive portal registration page can be customized based on business requirements.

Use the guest management policy commands to configure parameters, such as E-mail host and SMS gateway along with the credentials required for sending pass code to guest via e-mail and SMS. You can configure up to 32 different guest management policies. Each guest management policy allows you to configure the SMS gateway, SMS message body, E-mail SMTP server, E-mail subject contents, and E-mail message body. Although, at any point-in-time, multiple guest management policies may exist, only one guest management policy can be active per device.

Guest registration is supported only on the NX9500 and NX7500 series service platforms. However, the number of user identity entries supported on each varies. It is 2 million and 1 million user-identity entries for the NX9500 and NX7500 model service platforms respectively.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Service Platforms — NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
