Configure WLAN via API on a MX

Hi all,

we have over 700 hundred "MX68CW" deployed. We have done this all by API, which is great 🙂 but now we need to create a WLAN on most of this MXs. We need to create the SSID, the authentication(WPA2), the password and set the wlan to hidden. Unfortunately I found nothing about that in the API documentation.

Is it possible to make this configurations by API? Or do we have to configure this WLAN on every device by hand?

I am very thankful for your inputs.

Best regards Joel

Re: Configure WLAN via API on a MX

Creating SSIDs by API POST request that seems not available yet unfortunately.

 

Alternative idea for you to deploy SSIDs for your wireless networks would be using the configuration template.

You can create a template and bind it to all of target networks which would reduce your operation for setup and any changes in future much if all of wireless networks are designed and configured same.

Hope this would help some!
