How do we disable/enable a WLAN via SCG API?

We need to be able to switch between WLANs (one with captive portal the other open) during updates to our WIFI platform to avoid service interruptions to over a 100 different sites.

Is there a way to do this via the API? So we can do this by batch.

In the SCG dashboard there's a tick box for this but it takes too long if you have too many sites.

I don't understand your question.  What do you mean "switch between WLANs" via an SCG API?

Can you use the WLAN service schedule to service one WLAN during one period, and the other WLAN
during a different period?

Hi Michael,

Brian is my colleague. Currently we have around 100+ sites with captive portal. There are times that our captive portal is under maintenance and we will need to broadcast open SSIDs just to avoid service interruptions.

The problem here is that every site has a different SSID and it is very tedious to go to each WLAN Group and point it to open SSID. Is there a way to do this automatically?
