Hi cjoseph,

If i don't have ClearPass. I can't use AirGroup?

What solution can I deploy AirGroup without CPPM?

At minimum you should be able to have any users on the cluster see mdns and dlna devices when "Broadcast filtering" is set to ARP or ALL.  Typically discovery of mdns and dlna devices would be blocked when you set Broadcast Filtering to ALL or ARP on an SSID.  Airgroup makes it so that you can have improved performance with broadcast filtering, but users will still be able to discover devices using mdns or dlna.


Further, you should be albe to allow or block device discovery based on VLAN or Role.


To specify what usernames would be able to connect what devices, requires ClearPass.

Hey Bababa


Were you able to solve the same on IAP? That screenshot you have added is from an AOS8 Controller.


I'm just trying to figure out if Auto-associate is available for IAP or not..
