Good morning guys,
I have set up a cluster of Instant APs and communicate with AirWave properly over HTTPS (as I have read recently). If the communication is over HTTPS, do I need to configure SNMP for anything else? What advantages do I have if I configure SNMP for communication between the cluster and AirWave?

You should not need to configure it over SNMP at all. If you had a third-party system that you wanted to do SNMP reads from, that is why you would setup SNMP. Airwave does not need/use SNMP for instant.

One more thing about this. I have an alert in AirWave which is
If AirWave doesn't use SNMP for Instant and in addition I have configured nothing related to SNMP in my Instant cluster, why do I receive this alert which seems to be related to SNMP?

I believe the iAP sends the traps to Airwave along with syslog data and other telemetry - all wrapped in HTTPS.
if I've helped, please give kudos
if I've provided a solution, please mark the solution so others can find it

Yes, that is right. As Mathew mentioned IAP sends traps along with the other data send over https. If we dont have Airwave set as a trap receiver on IAP also we would get these data by default through https.
If my post helped you, don't forget to give kudos ;)

That's right, but I think the Trigger Summary field comes to confusion. Then I think it should be changed from "SNMP Trap Category is Hardware or SNMP Trap Category is Software" to "HTTPS Trap Category is Hardware or HTTPS Trap Category is Software".
