How to set Uplink vlan for AP if configuring multiple SSID/vlan and bridge mode?

Hi, we want to configure 2 ssid/vlans (vlan  3,4) on AP, AP should be on vlan 2,  AP will work in bridge mode. Now we already configured the switch port to trunk (allow vlan 2, 3,4), should we set UPlink vlan to 2 when doing AP provisioning? Thanks in advance.

If you set the uplink VLAN to 2, the AP will attempt to get its ip address on VLAN2-tagged.  Long-term it is probably best to leave the uplink VLAN untagged, because if you ever need to troubleshoot, in the future you would probably plug the AP into a switch that does not have VLAN 2 tagged and it will not come up.
