How to send the end-user a custom message after the IGEL thin client has contacted the ICG/UMS, and downloaded config profile?


We’re at the PoC stage for IGEL and UMS / ICG, so please forgive the newbie question. Is it possible to send the end user a custom message after the IGEL OS thin client has contacted the ICG/UMS, and downloaded it’s config profile and been successfully configured? We’re looking to deploy a cert to the Thin Client, that would be used for 802.1x Auth on the Thin Client.


Several different ways to do this. I’m sure Community will give you some options.

For example, you could have a cron job running looking at group.ini file for xyz and then displaying a message…

Locally the /wfs/group.ini is the file where all UMS profiles information is stored.

Well and the cron job could be looking for things, like a deployed /wfs/ca-certs


Ah, cool. Good to know. But from what you’re saying, nothing native within UMS it looks like. Not really a big deal, just a ‘nice to have’ as part of a potential 2-step end user process. The cert would be used for 802.1x Auth, which would then be used with a home-user SD-WAN device. So the cert needs to be on the thin client, before being used with the SD-WAN device. If that makes sense?

So, the first step would be to provision the thin client (over the Internet/ICG/UMS), when that’s completed, give the user a message that they can plug into the SD-WAN device


Hi @member it’s possible to send rich-text messages to users from the UMS. Not sure if that can be automated though!

You can automate in UMS using a Scheduled Job > Send Message and then pick the appropriate template


Thanks @member, I’ll take a look!
