Mesh & 802.1x

I am looking at turning on Mesh as I have an area I cant get to with wires, the warning about 802.1x pops up when I go to enable it. Does 802.1x stop working for the entire Ruckus ZD system of just for the APs I allow to use Mesh?

My system is heavily using 802.1x with radius and I don't want to kill all that to get it working.

My understanding is it means you can't use 802.1x on the physical switch port the AP connects to any longer, that is all

Correct, 802.1x on AP switch port, not related to wireless client authentication or affected by mesh hops.
