Description: In this article, we will discuss a detailed stepwise method of how to create a Ubiquiti Unifi Hotspot Operator to create guest vouchers. A Ubiquiti Unifi Hotspot operator can create guest vouchers but it does not have administrative privileges.

In Ubiquiti Unifi we can set up Guest Portal which can be used to allow internet access to guests or vendors. This helps to restrict internet access to a guest or vendor from the internal network. There are many options to use the guest portal. We will discuss here how to create a hotspot operator which will have access to create vouchers for Voucher Based Guest Wi-Fi Client Login. A voucher operator is important to keep the login separate from the administrator login.
