AP System Status via MM gui in AOS8

  • 1.  AP System Status via MM gui in AOS8

    In the AOS6 mobility controller GUI, I could navigate to Diagnostics -> Access Point -> System Status and obtain System Status on an AP by name. (see screenshot attached)

     

    I cannot seem to find this in AOS8 logged into my MM gui. I hope this was not removed. Can anyone help?

    I am not sure if this is by desing, but if the user has the "ap-provisioning" role in the MM, you will be able to see the same thing. 

     

    Screen shot attached. 

     

    I don't now why this is not available in the Admin view.

    Thanks for your reply Heltonb. When I changed my role to "ap-provisioning" I was able to see the diagnostics menu on the MM. However I lose a lot of other functionality in this role. I think it is rediculous that when I am in the "root" role, I do not see the diagnostic menu.

     

    I am not a fan at all of the new AOS8 gui. Old version 6 was much, much more friendly.

    Is there documentation somewhere describing the built in roles and their details? I cant find anything. As I can see, the possible roles include these options....

     

    root, read-only, location-api-mgmt, standard, nbapi-mgmt, ap-provisioning, network-operations, guest-provisioning

     

    What more, if I am logged in with the "ap-provisioning" role... I dont even see my APs... the list is empty. This role is useless.

    Even when I change to "ap-provisioning" role so I get the diagnostic menus for APs... the tool doesnt even work.

    Appears if I log into the MC directly (not the MM) with root role, I get the option for Diagnostics-->System Status-->Access point.

     

    Dont know why the current design doesnt let you do this if logged into the MM and you are on the MC in that gui. Since MM is supposed to be centralizing management anyway.
