I think I read somewhere there is an API for creating guest users on a WCS/WLC.

I am looking for a way to intergrating the creation into a intranet page.

Can somebody confirm such API and maybe point to a place to find it?

There is no API available for WLC except for communication with WCS but you could use custom/3rd-party SNMP tools to integrate API.

I think you are referring to the API available in the NAC CAS server

Yes. This has been confirmed by Cisco. An api description and some examples will be posted on "developers central" shortly. As it seems WCS has quite a few functions availably using it's Northbound API. The api will use SOAP/XML for interface.

That is great news.

I ende up sniffing the traffic from the WCS to the WLC with wireshark and saw the reuqiered SNMP OID's for making a guest user.

So I have made a little (ugly) perl script that make a guest user on the WLC, send a email to a sponsor and send a SMS via kannel.

Ugly, but its cover our need for now.

But a API will make life (and the perl script) alot nicer.

Thanks for the info.
