Can I config mass AP name on sz100 after all the AP joined the controller

Hi there,

It's there any method to modify all the ap name using script or cvs file after all the AP has joined to the sz ?

this is a great idea! currently we have 70 new APs to join and to rename.
we use consecutive numbering, hence it would be easy to create a csv with excel for that.

But seems the csv just can work for pre-provision AP.

Take a look at the following:


import requests
url="https://:8443/wsg/api/public/v6_0/"
login=requests.post(url+'session',verify=False,json={'username':'admin','password':''})
cookies=login.cookies
#find the zone name and uuid you want
zones=requests.get(url+'rkszones', verify=False, cookies=cookies)
zones.json()
#get a list of all the APs
aps=requests.get(url+'aps', verify=False, cookies=cookies)
aps.json()
#get a filtered list of APs (The aps of a specific zone)
aprequest={'filters':[{'type':'APZONE', 'value': ''}]}
aps=requests.get(url+'aps', verify=False, cookies=cookies,json=aprequest)
#how many APs did we get? len(myaps['list'])
#define new names for the APs
newapnames={'E8:1D:A8:22:AC:30':'AP-PR-01-28',
'E8:1D:A8:22:91:00':'AP-PR-01-29',
'E8:1D:A8:22:C2:F0':'AP-PR-03-38',
'E8:1D:A8:22:87:C0':'AP-SE-PB-04',
'E8:1D:A8:22:DC:20':'AP-SE-PB-05',
'E8:1D:A8:22:86:30':'AP-SE-01-12',
'E8:1D:A8:22:D7:70':'AP-SE-01-13',
'E8:1D:A8:22:BE:10':'AP-SE-02-20',
'E8:1D:A8:22:94:90':'AP-BI-01-45',
'E8:1D:A8:22:87:20':'AP-BI-01-46',
'E8:1D:A8:22:DC:30':'AP-KI-PB-47',
'E8:1D:A8:22:E3:10':'AP-KI-PB-48',
'E8:1D:A8:22:D6:10':'AP-KI-PB-50',
'D8:38:FC:19:19:90':'AP-SE-01-11',
'D8:38:FC:19:05:D0':'AP-SE-01-15'}
#do the actual renaming
for apname in newapnames.keys():
    print apname, newapnames[apname]
    #originalap=requests.get(url+'aps/'+apname, verify=False,cookies=cookies)
    #print originalap.json()
    patchAp=requests.patch(url+'aps/'+apname, verify=False, json={'name':newapnames[apname]}, cookies=cookies)
    print patchAp.status_code

You should run this line by line in a python shell... to be sure of what's happening. But it should get you going!

An additional note. This is meant for python 2.x but should work with minimal changes for python 3.x (replace the  "print ..... " by "print(...)"
