I'd love to help you, but I don't really understand your post.

It's just an automated process to avoid manual creation of many

Vouchers are active after creation as far as I remember (i don't use
local CP users, only radius)
Access will always be closed as long as there isn't a correct

Once this is done, access is open.

official issuer
