Controller Based WLANs

Is Apprf and WebCC part of global configuration or specific to local?
Q:

Is Apprf and WebCC are part of global configuration or specific to local?



A:

In a Master-Local Setup, even though the user role configuration that includes DPI and WebCC/Apprf gets replicated across the Locals, for the AppRF or the WebCC to work on all the Local Controllers, DPI should be enabled on each local Controllers under stateful firewall. Hence for the same reason, AppRF and Web CC are not global configuration as they depend on DPI feature in the firewall.

Note: Also Web CC under firewall has to be enabled as well for the Web Category to work on all Local controllers.
