- Creating each user manually via the Cloud4Wi Dashboard
- Create accounts programmatically via APIs
- Implement a Single Sign On on the captive portal to let individuals login with their corporate credentials (for eg. handled in Azure AD, Google, Orka or any other IdP/CIAM)
- Let individuals self signup via an online portal.
In this article, we'll describe a use case that allows individuals to signup autonomously form an online portal and then have an admin approve them, reducing the IT burden.

A predefined Admin, as configured using the Sponsorship Validation, will be notified that an individual has registered, and he has to approve his account and assign an Access Policy (it can be an unlimited time policy for employees or, for example, a policy with expiration for contractors).
The user receives a confirmation email that reminds him of the account credentials and provides the instructions to connect to the WiFi. The email content and design can be customized from the Cloud4Wi Dasbhaord > Preferences section.
