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 isn't possible.
To create the client
- Open Aruba ClearPass Guest and go to Administration –> API Services –> API Clients and click Create API Client.
- 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 cleared.
Read Only Administrator Operator Profile doesn't give API permissions by default.
- Save changes and copy the Client ID and the Client Secret.
- Add the IP address of the Axonius instance to the ClearPass API Access List.
Create a ClearPass Profile
To create a Profile in ClearPass
- From Operator Logins > Profile, select Edit to edit the profile that the user created.
From Policy Manager, select Custom.
Allow Read access to the following:
- Identity - Endpoints
- Network - Devices
- Insight - Endpoints
The 'Insight Module' needs to be enabled in order to fetch device IP addresses.
