Adding APs in Bulk

If you want to add multiple access points (APs) to your RUCKUS Cloud account, instead of adding them one by one, you can import them into your RUCKUS Cloud account using a comma-separated value (.CSV) file. Using the .CSV template, you can import up to 50 APs simultaneously.

Complete the following steps to import and add multiple APs to your RUCKUS Cloud account.

    The APs tab is displayed.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the APs page, click Import from file.
