Authentication agents can automatically add an agent record to the internal database. The process of adding an agent record is called registering the agent.

If your network uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to assign IP addresses, consider enabling agent auto-registration. When enabled, agent IP addresses are automatically updated whenever the IP address of the agent host changes.

The Auto-Registration utility automatically registers users’ computers in the Authentication Manager database the first time users start their computers with Authentication Agent installed. This utility and eliminates the need for an administrator to manually create the agent host record.

Before you begin 

  • Install an authentication agent.

  • Configure the agent host. See your agent documentation for information.


  1. In the Security Console, click Setup > System Settings> Agents.

  2. Select Allow authentication agent auto-registration.

  3. Click Save.
