How to "Auto Join" using Sentry Wi-Fi

Hi,

 

We have both Meraki MDM and Meraki access point. I'm trying to get a windows tablet to automatically join to our Meraki WiFi network using the "Systems Mananger Sentry Wi-Fi security" feature listed on the SSID Access Control page. It works, but the problem is it doesn't automatically join the network. 

 

I notice that if I create a Wi-Fi profile manually under Meraki MDM, there's a checkbox named "Auto Join". This isn't available on the profile automatically created by the Sentry Wi-Fi feature. 

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to have devices auto join Wi-Fi using the Sentry Wi-Fi security feature?

 

Cheers,

Tom

Hi @MSCICT,

Right, I believe this is the way, as mentioned here https://meraki.cisco.com/blog/2015/11/set-and-forget/

Thanks!

Hey Tom,

 

You'll just need to tick the Auto Join box. None of the fields are 'pre-ticked'.

This is pushed to my iPhone for example, and whenever I am at home (not that we've been allowed to leave with the current lockdown!), it will automatically authenticate with the network.

 

Kind regards,
