Ise with base license

Unanswered Question
Sep 19th, 2012

Hi everyone,

trying to make sense of ISE licensing. I'll able to use Identity store with static MAC address (manualy added) in authorization policy.

My question is that able to be accomplished via base licensing or is  that considered posturing/profiling?

Thanks all!

I have this problem too.

Your understanding is correct. Once a device is granted access using dynamic profiling then that is considered amd advanced feature.

posturing/profiling are covered under Advance license only, Base license doesn’t have this functionality.

You can manually add MAC addresses to an identity group, and then reference that group in the authorization policy. This is a static entry and should NOT use an advanced license.
If you have a mass of mac addresses to add, you can load them in to a template excel spreadsheet and import them in one go.

The Base License is consumed whenever an authentication notification is  received by Cisco ISE. A single Advanced License is consumed when any  one or more of the following services or conditions are applied to the  endpoint session:


Security Group Tag assignment

Authorization using profile information

Endpoint is registered in the MyDevices Portal
