Please give me tips on how you handle change control at your projects. "Cloning" does not serve me well.

I cannot even describe the frustration I am having with the "clone" process.

I am trying to modify just the VLAN for of my main ssid at just a few radios.....

No matter how I clone and edit I get bad results. Either all of my existing happy radios now get sad and report they need configuration upload. (Which is not easy to correct from since "audit" will not work on more than one at a time).

So then I clone the Net Policy, the SSID, and the User Profile.
I edit my "new" clone, try to swap to the "new" cloned SSID and the system WARNS that all of my other objects will be affected. Since I know how hard it is to "undo" I am hitting cancel and starting over.

Please tell me how you would make this change..... You only want to move ONE ssid at a few radios to a new vlan.

Thanks.

Rob.

edit user profile and click + and assign vlans by tag, device or topology, you don't need to clone to assign different vlans to different devices.

I personally use topology and device tags

FYI.  I did end up using Vlan with Topology Node to shift things around.

BUT... that was not the point of my post.

The overall "cloning" design is flawed since there is no "audit" to learn what objects will be affected.  I was hoping that there would be this feature by now.
