Creating a New Group by Importing Configuration from a Device

You can create a new group by importing configuration from a device. The import configuration is supported only for Instant APs with ArubaOS 8 architecture. You can create a new group for Instant APs with ArubaOS 8 architecture by importing configuration from an Instant AP. You can add more devices later by editing the group.

To import configuration from an existing IAP to a new group, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Aruba Central app, set the filter to Global.
  2. Under Maintain, click Organization.

    By default, the Network Structure tab is displayed.

  3. Click the Groups tile.

    The Groups page is displayed.

  4. Expand a group which has IAP devices.
  5. Select the Instant AP with ArubaOS 8 architecture.
  6. Click the Import Group icon.

    The Add Group pop-up window is displayed.

  7. Enter a name for the group.
  8. Click Add.

    A group is created with the configuration imported from a device.

The group created by an user role that has read and write access is displayed in the Groups list only after that group is assigned to the user by the administrator on HPE Greenlake. For information about how to assign a group to the user, see the Manage section in the HPE GreenLake Edge to Cloud Platform User Guide.
