FortiAP groups

FortiAP groups facilitate the application of FortiAP profiles to large numbers of FortiAPs. A FortiAP can belong to no more than one FortiAP group. A FortiAP group can include only one model of FortiAP.

Through the VLAN pool feature, a FortiAP group can be associated with a VLAN to which WiFi clients will be assigned. For more details about VLAN pool assignment, see VLAN assignment by VLAN pool.

To create a FortiAP group - GUI
  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > Managed FortiAPs and select Create New > Managed AP Group.
  2. Give the group a Name.
  3. Choose Members.
  4. Click OK.
To create a FortiAP group - CLI

In this example, wtp-group-1 is created for a FortiAP-221C and one member device is added.

config wireless-controller wtp-group

edit wtp-group-1

set platform-type 221C

config wtp-list

edit FP221C3X14019926
