Guest Pwd Change

Hello, 

 

We've about 160 locations (MXs) and we need to change the guest SSID password. To upgrade  each one of those locations (each MX) it will be a laborious task. I was wondering if there was a way to upgrade all MXs using a script and if so where can I find that script? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Kind of a big deal

This is what the API is for. A short python script that loops through all the networks and sets the new password.

But I don't know if there is something readily available. But it shouldn't take too long to write this if you have someone with some python knowledge.

Thank you!

I would check out SplashAccess.  They are a third-party add-on that you have to pay for, but they have a brilliant splash page system, which can support automatic guest password rotation.

I couldn't find any scripts "ready to go".  This is an example of a powershell script, but it only does a single network.

You need to use the API as @KarstenI suggested.  The github has some examples of iterating over an org.  You really need to iterate over every network in an org and make the change.

I have written a simple application using VB which loops thru all the network ID and changes the password for our guest network account
