BlackListing APs


Is there an option to BlackList APs as you would to clients?

For example an organisation is purchasing some of our APs and what I'm looking to do is prevent them from connecting the APs onto our switches.

Many thanks,

That is exactly what the Control Plane Security Feature does.

I'm not sure what you mean 'connecting onto switches'.
As cjoseph wrote, you can use Control Plane Security feature to authorize APs to connect to your Aruba controller.
Or if you mean connecting APs to wired switch, you can use 802.1x on switch for authorization your APs (wpa supplicant on AP). You can setup it on provisioning page.
