How can different VLANs get tagged to a single user profile depending on which building an AP is installed?

I have a single Network Policy deployed to nine buildings. For a user profile in one of the SSIDs, I need to assign a different VLAN depending on in which building an AP is installed.

E.g., High School - VLAN 217, Middle School - VLAN 218, Intermediate School - VLAN 219.

How can I configure the Network Policy to do this?

Hi Kevin

You can assign VLANs based on the topology map the AP's are associated to, or if you don't use the maps, you can use device classification tags on each AP and then assign VLANs based on these in the user profile.

In the user profile where the default VLAN is listed, create a set of rules based on which method you use.

Thank you, Chris. Can you explain in more detail which settings I select to create these rules?

I did something similar. You will need to create Classifier Tags on all your APs, then create a VLAN profile that maps those tags to the different VLANs. See my attached picture.

Keep in mind the classifier tags are CaSe and sp ace sensitive when you're entering them in the VLAN screen.

Where do you configure the "Value" so it is available to select when creating a new vlan name?

@Kevin Stastny,

You configure it inline when you create a new VLAN with the "new" button. Then you modify the APs to add add the classifier tags to the APs.
