We recently made the jump to Extreme/Aerohive, but held off on rolling out Guest access because the building is closed to outsiders due to Covid. I still need to get Guest access working 100%.
Right now what I have comes straight from the Aerohive/Extreme docs:
-Guest connects to “Guest-Registration” SSID
-Fills out form (name, email, phone)
-dropped from “Guest-Registration” SSID
-Email sent with PPSK and the SSID to connect to
-Guest connects to the SSID provided in the email with the provided PPSK
All that works fine and was easy to setup (thank you Aerohive/Extreme!).
My question...how can I allow the Guest to stay connected to the “Guest-Registration” for up to 15 minutes (with unrestricted access) so they can actually go and check their email to get the email with their guest credentials?

Have you looked into the Extreme Guest application that’s included with XIQ Pilot licencing? This has a more customisability, including the option to add a walled garden. Users can still get their own individual keys that are sent out via email/text as with a PPSK, just that it’s in a separate section of XIQ. An additional benefit (in my opinion) is that the registration SSID and the actual guest SSID are the same, therefore, there’s no need to switch between the two.
Flow: Connect to Guest-SSID > splash page displayed > user enters details such as name, email, phone etc [optionally they can also add a “sponsor”, so they’d have to enter someone’s email of a certain domain (i.e. your own) to get approved access] > user gets credentials sent through email/text > user enters the details on the login section of the splash page
