For Omada Cloud-Based Controller (CBC) , please use the domain of your CBC instead of “target_controller_ip:targetport” in the URL pointing to the “browserauth” API.

For example, for the CBC with URL in this figure, the API would be
“https://aps1-omada-controller.tplinkcloud.com/portal/radius/browserauth”

This URL should be added to WiFi Location on the Start Hotspot Cloud WiFi portal.
On the WiFi location as a Model select TP-Link Omada Controller.
Click Show Advanced and additional fields will be opened.
As Login URL type your CBC URL.
