    What equipment do you have? AP type? AP mode? Controller? Aruba Central?
    Is this about the switch configuration? Or the AP configuration?

    If this is about Instant Access points, you would configure your switch to have untagged VLAN2 on the port facing the AP, and have VLANXX and VLANYY tagged to the same port facing the AP. Then in your configuration, for management do nothing. For the clients, configure the VLANXX on the SSID/Wireless Network; and VLANYY on another SSID/Wireless Network. If a VLAN is assigned to a wireless network (or during authentication with a RADIUS server the Aruba-User-VLAN is returned with a VLAN ID), that client's traffic is automatically sent out tagged from the AP.

    Depending on the model you would create an SSID per VLAN or you could allow all tagged traffic. It really depends on your switch setup and how your tagging your VLANs

    i am refering to aruba central.
    switch side is already configured as i have existing on-premise aruba controller that is working.
    we are planning to migrate our APs to aruba central.
    our AP consists of AP-303 and AP-345

    Central is using Instant or AOS 10, so follow what I shared in my earlier response.

    since this is instant AP, make sure that the switch port that connects to the APs are configured for VLAN trunking.
    the APs will be in the untagged or native VLAN and then you can just reference VLAN IDs that are part of that VLAN trunk (tagged VLANs) in the Radius response as Herman mentioned. This will work only for the RADIUS based auth and not PSK based ones.

    for PSK based auth you can use this option
