Assigning Labels to Gateways

In Aruba Central, labels refer to the tags attached to a device provisioned in the network. You can use labels for tagging devices to a specific area in a physical location, to an owner or a specific branch, or a business unit. You can use these labels as filters for monitoring branch and device health, and generating reports.

To assign a label to a gateway, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Aruba Central app, set the filter to Global.

    The dashboard context for the selected filter is displayed.

  2. Under Maintain, click Organization > Labels.

    The Manage Labels page is displayed.

  3. Locate the label to which you want to assign a device.

    You can also create a new label by clicking Add Label and providing a label name.

  4. In the table that lists the labels, you can perform one of the following actions:
    • Click All Devices to view all devices.
    • Click Unassigned to view all the devices that are not assigned to any labels.
  5. Select Unassigned.

    A list of devices that are not assigned to any label are displayed.

  6. Select one or several devices from the list of devices.
  7. Drag and drop the selected devices to a specific label.

    A pop-up window opens and prompts you to confirm the label assignment.

  8. Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.
