Create an Aruba ClearPass RestAPI Client

You must create a client to use the Aruba ClearPass API. Consider this client as the App definition on Aruba ClearPass. Without this client, access to the API is not possible.

To create the client:

  1. Open Aruba ClearPass Guest and go to Administration –> API Services –> API Clients and click the Create API Client button.
  2. Provide the following information:
    • Client ID - Creates the connection between the user and the API.
    • Operator Profile - Includes the API Services access rights. Axonius required read-only permissions.
    • Grant Type - Set the OAuth2 authentication method as 'Client Credentials'.
    • Public Client - Make sure this option is unselected.
NOTE

Read Only Administrator Operator Profile doesn't give API permissions by default.

  1. Save changes and copy the Client ID and the Client Secret.
  2. Add the IP address of the Axonius instance to the ClearPass API Access List.

When you create a Profile in ClearPass make sure of the following:
