Creates a Location policy and enters its configuration mode. Use this command to configure a policy that provides the ExtremeLocation server hostname, and the ExtremeLocation Tenant‘s API key needed to authenticate and authorize with the server. Apply this Location policy on the WiNG devices (site controller, virtual controllers, and standalone APs). When applied, these devices push/export site hierarchy to the ExtremeLocation server. The site hierarchy includes site details along with details of APs deployed within the site.


Once created and configured, apply this Location policy on the WiNG controller‘s self, to enable Tenant site hierarchy reporting by the controller to the ExtremeLocation server.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP510, AP505
  • Wireless Controllers — RFS4000
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
