Adding AP tags

When you configure a wireless network (SSID), you decide whether the SSID is available to all APs or to a certain groups of APs. A group of APs is formed by assigning the same tag to them. For example, if there are 10 APs in your AP network, you could create 2 AP groups based on AP model or by their physical location.

Use AP tags to control which SSIDs to broadcast on a group of FortiAP devices.

Procedure steps

  1. In the Menu bar, click Configure.
  2. In the Navigation pane, click AP Tags.
  3. Near the top-right corner, click Add AP Tag.
  4. Type a name and description.
  5. To save the AP tag, click Apply.
  6. You can assign AP tags to an AP when you perform the Activating a FortiAP device procedure.
