This is a great idea! Currently HiveManager performs configuration audits automatically in the background. But performing manual configuration audits is limited to a single device. Performing manual configuration audits on multiple devices at once could be useful to initiate an immediate audit rather than waiting for the background audit to occur.

After two years and Aerohive STILL has not added this feature?  What's up with that?  I've found that some configuration changes do not automatically trigger the audit mismatch flag in HiveManager devices display.  This makes it extremely difficult to determine what devices need the configuration push and which do not.

Hi, we're having the same issue.  We have about 600 APs and some show the green tick until you manually audit them then they show they're out of date and have been for quite a while.

Being able to choose a whole area to test would be helpful for trouble shooting.

You can select gear in mass and under Advanced Settings, there is a place to add a Configuration Audit Schedule.  From the help file.

Configuration Audit Schedule
  • This section only appears in the GUI for on-premises HiveManager physical and virtual appliances. It is not available in HiveManager Online.

A configuration audit compares the configuration for an AP on HiveManager with the running configuration on the AP. To schedule a one-time configuration audit or a regularly recurring series of audits, select a previously defined schedule from the drop-down list. If you do not see a schedule that you want to use, click the New icon and define a new one, or choose an existing schedule and click the Modify icon to change it into a schedule that you do want to use. For Help about defining schedules, see "Schedules".

I feel like I've tried it though with limited success.  Your mileage may vary.

I've tried scheduling the audits as you suggest, but it doesn't work.  I'm not sure why and I haven't had time to contact support about it.
