I am putting the HiveAP in the network and want to enable WIPS just for rogue AP detection. I do not want to do any blocking, just want to view its detection capability. How can i do it?

This is quite simple...

Under network policy, find and select "Additional options":

Then find and expand "Service settings". Click on "+" button next to WIPS to create new WIPS object policy:

Now you can play with different settings. Once done just upload the whole network policy to your APs:

It would be in detection only mode if you set the "mitigation mode" to "manual".  

This is under the "Optional Settings" menu of the WIPS policy in HM6.
