Airwave does not automatically import the template of IAP
Issue: I have Provisioned an IAP to Airwave 7.7, i do not see the template of the IAP under the Group.
From 7.7 onwards, Airwave supports IAP config from the GUI . If the Aruba IAP Config is enabled, the template will not be fetched from the devices for this group.
NOTE: Instant GUI Config (IGC) was first introduced in 7.7.0 and a BETA version. Only in 7.7.4 IGC was releases as a production release.
We can modify these settings under Group - Basic page.
If we enable this option, the below tabs would not be visible to users.
1: Template tab ( under Groups page )
2: Manage tab of the IAP.
If the above option is disabled, we would see two new tabs on Airwave.
1: Instant Config under Group page.
2: Compliance tab under Ap/Devices page.
Difference between Template and Instant GUI Config:
Instant GUI Config provides the feel and view of the IAP WEBUI and we can configure almost everything from the GUI, in case of templates its more like a cli configuration where a User must be specific about the commands and syntax.
Below is a screen capture which shows the IAP's template page on Airwave.
