In a school environment we have user profiles that have appropriate availability schedules based on student age levels , bedtime disconnection of client devices, different weekend schedules to school day schedules etc. This has worked for couple of years ok, Apart from the overnight disconnected state causes the networks health scores to look really bad permanately
Now I am tasked with users needing access to one site (semi permanently) so basically some sort of firewall policy involved that overides the actual permitted scheduled hours for that site/app. One particular site that needs wifi but all other access is regulated to the predetermined times.
So looking for possible redirection of user profiles depending on time schedules
Do I actually reconfigure to have students connected 24hrs a day, with dns, ip etc, (solving the health scores hopefully)
and then have some sort of complex firewall policy with time based allowance levels or redirections to allow or disconnect internet traffic to schedules.
i don’t actually think what i’m asking is achievable without 3rd party firewall controls externally to aerohive but open to suggestions

Thank you for clarifying, I don’t think that is something we can do in the XIQ set up, I believe you would need to use your network firewall for that level of granular control.
