My Device Portal

I have a customer that wants to use the my devices portal for student dorms to onboard their echo's, phones, etc.  I was wondering if this would consume a Plus License?

Re: My Device Portal

IN the ordering guide it’s explained somewhat

 

Clarification is that Registered devices consume a plus license upon connection

 

when you register a device using the portal then it’s put into registered device group 

 

basically if you’re using the portal then you are obligated to pay for it

Re: My Device Portal

Hi

 

The answer is it depends. Let me explain. When you use MyDevice portal, it will add devices into RegisteredDevices by default. As soon as you create an authorization policy matching this group, you'll consume a PLUS license.

Now if you create a new endpoint group which shouldn't be child of RegisteredDevices or any profiling groups (just simple group without any parent group) and use this one to be used with MyDevice portal, you shouldn't consume any PLUS license but just a base.


Thanks

Re: My Device Portal

That’s great, but (a) try explaining that to a customer, and (b) this feels like a workaround that Cisco could easily close with a software update (unless Cisco have documented this is a valid thing to do somewhere?). Personally I’d just play it safe and get some PLUS licenses.

Re: My Device Portal

Not documented for the portal but for the group you can found it i believe on a doc that some groups consume plus licenses.
This is something I've tested for a particular case and we saw that plus weren't consumed (don't recall the ise version).
Officially you're right, the way to take is to get some plus licenses.

Thanks
