User Identification using Windows NPS?

Is it possible to have the user ID agaent look at NPS events to determin a user is authenticated?  I am trying to find a way to ID users on a wireless network without using captive portal.  My users are all Active Directory users and the devices they would connect with are BYOD.  I was hoping that we could have them connect to the WLAN using auth against NPS on my domain controller.  This works for connecting but the user is still unidentified by Palo.:smileyconfused:

I would head over to the devcenter to get more insight. I would think NPS logging can be extracted and forwarded to a syslog server. From there, pull data via a UID xml api call?

Some months ago one of my customers challenged me with the same scenario and I ended up creating a JAVA connector that can run as a windows service in the same server where the NPS is. It have been tested up to 50K login/logout events per minute in a 2,3GHz Intel Core i7

More info at Microsoft NPS to PANOS UserID connector
