IAP - Blocking a wireless client

    According to the help context in Central, we can block a wireless client only if "client blocking option is enabled for the SSID under the AP configuration".

    Denylisting Instant AP Clients


    I cannot find this option on the SSID. I believe it is refering to the "Denylisting" option under the Security Tab of the SSID. 

    With Denylisting enabled, I am still not able to Block a Client. When I select a client and look at the  Actions field on a Client my only option is to 'Disconnect', not Block. 

    Anyone have recommendations to get Client Blocking working?

    Thanks!

    the use case for denylisting (blacklisting) under security tab, is to enable dynamic blacklisting of the clients with a specific number of authentication failures.
    for manual blacklisting, you can do it from here.
