I have configured fixed ip assignment to switches and AP in my network. The Switches have been assigned the fixed IPs successful but the AP is not being assigned that specific IP via DHCP despite restarting or power cycling the switch port connected to it.
what can be done to have the AP assigned that specific ip and what is making it from getting that IP
Did you verify your port configuration is correct? The port connected to the AP. I've also had some instances where the AP takes an hour or more to take the static IP. Especially if it has been rebooted a bunch.

As Adam mentioned, confirm the configuration of the port the AP is connected to - also if you are serving the DHCP on a specific VLAN, check the configuration on the AP itself: Wireless -> Access Points -> Specific AP -> Lan IP, is it set for DHCP and the correct VLAN?
I think I had the same problem. Try leaving the VLAN field on the WAP static assignment blank. There may be some set of circumstances that would cause you to need that to be filled in, but in my environment, I had to make that blank or the dashboard / WAP complained about bad IP assignments.
