Each wireless device you add to your site can be configured with one of two types of configuration policies:
Select this policy type if you want to manage the wireless devices in your site as one unit - this means the majority of your site's settings will be pushed to all of your wireless access points.
You might choose this for a hotel, business, or other similar application. Even though enterprise-type devices will inherit most of their settings from the site-level, you can always override any settings at the device-level by making changes on the device-level configuration pages.
Select this policy type if your devices will be used for infrastructure, backhaul, or will be configured independently from the other devices in your site. For example - if you need to run one of your APs as a wireless client, you might want to choose this option.
These devices will only inherit the configuration for local logins, LED functionality, and reset button functionality.
How does this affect configuration?
Each configuration section will tell you, via the indicator in the image below, whether or not the types of devices listed on the indicator will inherit the site-level settings for that section.
