report - clients by role

Hi,
I wonder whether I'm the only one to that is interested to see a "client by role" report.
With more and more single SSID deployments (and one for guests :-)) I often like/need to filter by role to troubleshoot a certain user/client group.
Right now the only way to do it is to export the all or VNS report and then import it to Excel to get the data.

If you have NAC deployed, it's possible to filter in NAC manager by role.

But it would be nice to have a native report on controller.

Some customers asked me for this feature (as they don't have NAC) and I was just thinking about it today, and found this thread. Awesome!

This could be an awesome feature, and much needed!

Best regards,

Thanks for supporting the idea and for your feedback.

As you've mentioned I also use NAC/OneView if available but in smaller deployments we don't have this luxury - so fingers crossed to get this CR thru....

Ronald,

My fingers are already crossed too... Many customers (most with mixed vendor networking gear, where we can deploy only the IdentiFi solution don't have or don't want NAC/OneView).

Maybe another idea, if possible, to have a similar report using the "Zone" AP attribute... I have customers using it to deploy on remote locations with different networking designs, using the same role, but different topologies and other customized solutions.

Best Regards,

-Leo

Awesome news!

Many non-NAC customers should be pleased!

Thanks

Even I as a NAC customer am pleased, viewing the clients on the controller gives me more wireless information than NAC Manager/OneView does.

Status after 11 months....

"As there were more critical features to be added, this enhancement has been rescheduled for the 10.21 release track versus 10.11."

At this point I don't see myself ever opening a CR again..... :-(
