We jjust deployed a new virtual SmartZone controller and are loving the functionality. However, we are getting an error on the health map concerning the Google Maps. Support says we need a Google Maps API key, but Google just changed their Google Maps setting a this month (June 2018) and now requires a billing account to get an API key. Existing API keys will require a billing account in the future if you don't already have one. The only way to get a billing account is to give Google a valid, existing credit card number.  I refuse to give Google a credit card number to make my Ruckus controller work as it was demonstrated to me before the sale.

Please contact you Sales Rep from Ruckus, or you distributor to discuss this in more detail, as on this forum itself we cannot change this.

Because google's payment policy is changed, We will have difficulty seeing Google Maps in the future.

I think Ruckus should consider another map api to replace it.

Hi, is it possible to remove Google maps from Dashboard or set imported maps to be shown by default ?
