Sponsored Guest - Reporting


Sponsored Guest - Reporting

Does anyone know of a way to get reporting on a sponsored guest portal? We have a client who wants insight into guests requesting access as well as which employees are granting access. 

Kind of a big deal

Does this help:


Network Wide -> Users


Believe you can filter or select Auth by SSID.


There is a list of usernames, when they registered, who authorized the registration. Manual process from the dashboard. I’m sure they’ll be an API to automate.

I'm not an employee of Cisco/Meraki. My posts are based on Meraki best practice and what has worked for me in the field.

Hi UCcert,


Unfortunately that doesn't show anything. It seems the sponsored guest login is treated differently from Meraki authentication. With a working sponsored guest login setup, going to Network Wide --> Users only tells me that Meraki authentication is not currently in use in this network.

Some were looking for this feature back in 2018: https://community.meraki.com/t5/Wireless-LAN/Sponsored-guest-reporting/m-p/28454#M4528


In my case, I have a user working from home who got a sponsored guest authorization email from someone they don't know.  The only evidence we have of the request is the email itself, and it doesn't even tell us which building that person was at when they made the request.  With a complete lack of auditing, we'll never know if this request was in good faith and we're letting down a client, or if this was a malicious connection attempt.

Here to help

Hi @lex0429 ,


you can go for each Access Point and in the "current client" part, you see all the active devices with their names and  leased IP addresses and also their MAC addresses. But you can not see the clients whom are offline or with unsuccessful connection request.
