This list represents all locally stored configuration templates. These templates are provided as a configuration help for ArubaOS and Aruba Instant deployments as is without any warranty or support at best effort. ArubaOS/Aruba Instant software version dependencies or deployment specific requirements of the used Aruba infrastructure might require custom changes to the provided template configuration.

The templates include placeholders for setup specific settings. Some of the placeholders are automatically replaced when opened in the app or the app web dashboard with the respective IoT-Utilities app settings e.g. the IP-address for ease of use. Some of the placeholders have to be manually replaced with the required values e.g. ap-group.
