Thanks Herwin,

What I understand from here is we need to write all the logic and codes
required in the rest api service(in whichever language we are writing it).

But we already have one Radius server with all the logics and

We are using mikrotik NAS. It has hotspot service also. Is it possible we
can use hotpost for  authentication via API?
