Aruba Central allows you to manage configuration for different devices, such as Aruba Instant APs, gateways, and switches in your inventory. These devices can be configured using either UI workflows or configuration templates. You can define your preferred configuration method when creating a group.
Aruba Central allows you to create a single group with different configuration methods defined for each device type. For example, you can create a group with the name Group1, and within this group, you can enable template-based configuration method for switches and UI-based configuration method for Instant APs
After you assign devices to a group and when you access configuration containers, Aruba Central automatically displays relevant configuration options based on the configuration method you defined for the device group.
