External Web Authentication

From CMX Connect, you can now authenticate through an external AAA server. You can design your portal to require guests to provide their web-authentication credentials (such as a username and password). CMX Connect then instructs the Cisco WLC to use the submitted credentials to authenticate your client.

Note: Use Cisco CMX Connect to configure web portals. Use the Cisco WLC, not Cisco CMX Connect, to configure and manage web authentication. CMX Connect will not be able to determine the success of authentication on the Cisco WLC, the status on the CMX client CSV, or the accuracy of the API results. In addition, the portal frequency setting does not apply to this authentication flow.

To access this feature, select Library > Template > Web Auth Form.

To configure the Cisco WLC, see the "Setup Controller with External Web-Authentication" section in the Cisco WLC configuration guide.
