APIC-EM - AP FlexConnectGroup 8.3 JSON Syntax

Hi,

I'm currently trying to use the APIC-EM PNP feature to configure Access-points running 8.3 with the WLC-IP, Ap-MODE, AP-Group and FlexConnect-Group.

I can't find the JSON syntax for WLC 8.3 software (AP image 15.3(3)JD).

The 8.2 syntax shows as follows:

{"apGroup":"BldgA-local","primaryWlcIP":"10.10.80.5","primaryWlcName":"5508-1","secondaryWlcIP":"10.10.80.6","secondaryWlcName":"5508-2","tertiaryWlcIP":"10.10.10.7","tertiaryWlcName":"8500-1","apMode":" flexconnect"}


But I'm missing the FlexConnect Group setting added in 8.3.


Regards


Ralph

"apFlexGroupName" : "flexgroup"  for example..  It is just another attribute.

That should be all you need.

And you need to remove the "apGroup" attribute.

That would be apFlexGroupName

Note: You also need to set the apMode as well.

Yeah, I'm already setting the apMode, but I'm missing the syntax for the flexConnectGroup.

Ohh. missed the "apFlexGroupName the first time.

(Will test right away)

So you can't set both apGroup and apFlexGroupName?

Do you know if any documentation exists for this? I can't seem to find it.

Highlighted

Both apGroup and apFlexGroupName works fine together.

Thank you.

     "apMode":" flexconnect",

     "apGroup":"APGrp-BranchA",

     "apFlexGroupName":"FlexGrp-BranchA"

}

Yes you are correct.  You can have both.

  • apGroup: sets RF characteristics (i.e. to cater for physical/environmental differences within a site)
  • flexGroup is for having different security, DHCP, ACL and VLAN mappings for different sites that (for instance) all broadcast the same SSID

Is there a document that lists all of the configurable attributes?

For example how did you aradford know that flexGroup was an attribute that could be set?

Hi Justin,

I'm also missing documentation.

Adam has inside information And he was sure fast to answer the request when I posted it originally.

Yes, I do have some inside information,   I am an SE @ Cisco, so spoke to engineering team.

I am trying to get a definitive list for you all.

I have some that I know about, I just want to make sure I have them all.

Will update soon.

Do you have any updates to this?

  • primary, secondary, tertiary WlcIP and WlcName
  • apMode
  • apGroup
  • apFlexGroupName

Are the ones that are documented.  There are 9 options in total.  You only need to specify a primate wlcIP and wlcName, no need to provide secondary and tertiary.

Hi Adam,

Has this list been extended to allow for more options in the JSON file?

Thanks,

Brad

Can you confirm that apFlexGroupName is accurate?  It does not appear to be taking that setting, but the other documented ones work.  Here is my sanitized config

{

"primaryWlcIP": "1.1.1.1",

"primaryWlcName": "primary",

"secondaryWlcIP": "2.2.2.2",

"secondaryWlcName": "secondary",

"apMode": "flexconnect",

"apGroup": "APGroup",

"apFlexGroupName": "Flex-100"

}

Hi Justin,

sorry for the dumb Q, but are you sure it is 8.3 image on the AP?

That is the only version that supports apFlexGroupName
