Upgradeing WLC from 5508 to 9800 - How to move ssid groups to Tag´s

We are about to move our AP´S from 5508 WLC to new 9800-40 WLC. 

I use Cisco prime 3.7 to administrat the accesspoints. (about 900)

Is there a way to  add  TAGS in cisco prime to the accesspoints

I used Templates / Lightweight Access Points but there is no way to choose Site Tag Name, RF Tag Name, Policy Tag Name.

I cant add TAGS in the AP config view. Iconfiguration  after the AP moved to new WLC the AP Group Name filed is missing .

Here is the Prime user guide that does mention tags

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/net_mgmt/prime/infrastructure/3-6/user/guide/bk_CiscoPrimeInfrastructure_3_6_0_UserGuide/bk_CiscoPrimeInfrastructure_3_6_0_UserGuide_chapter_011010.html

 

From what I can tell it doesn't allow you to manage site tags once the AP has joined the WLC.

I know the 9800 is better being managed with DNA-C

The other option you could look at is the 9800 is able to deploy everything via APIs so you could look at using the APIs to do this.

I found a way

CONFIGURATION TAGS & PROFILES/ TAGS/AP / STATIC

  •  

I can preload a csv file and when the AP register to WLC it gets the right Groups/Tags.

AP MAC Address,Policy Tag Name,Site Tag Name,RF Tag Name

 

It´s the same as if the ap register to WLC and i config the Group under Edit AP.
