AP group vs WLAN override interface priority

Hi,

SW version 4.2.207.0

Which interface(VLAN ID) of SSID has priority while AP is configured with WLAN override?

One configured in AP group or one configured in WLAN SSID.

Example:

LAP1 is in AP group with SSID1 to interface VLAN2 mapping

WLAN SSID1 has mapping to interface VLAN3

LAP1 has WLAN override enable for SSID1.

Clients connected to LAP1 will be in VLAN2 or VLAN3?

Thanks for clarifying.

AP group vs WLAN override interface priority

clients will be connecting to VLAN3. WLAN overrides what WLAN needs to be enabled/broadcasted on specific AP while AP group overrides WLAN to VLAN mappings.

Configuring WLAN Override

By default, access points transmit all defined WLANs on the controller. However, you can use the WLAN override option to select which WLANs are transmitted and which are not on a per access point basis. For example, you can use WLAN override to control where in the network the guest WLAN is transmitted, or you can use it to disable a specific WLAN in a certain area of the network.

Configuring Access Point Groups

In a typical deployment, all users on a WLAN are mapped to a single interface on the controller. Therefore, all users associated with that WLAN are on the same subnet or VLAN. However, you can override this default WLAN setting to distribute the load among several interfaces or to group users based on specific criteria such as individual departments (for example, marketing) by creating access point groups (formerly known as site-specific VLANs). Additionally, these access point groups can be configured in separate VLANs to simplify network administration
