Juniper (Mist)

Account preparation

For each property you need to create a new Site.

Go to Organization, Site Configuration and click Create Site. Give the site a name, for example one that recalls the name of the property, and click Save.

Go to Sites and select WLANs. Click Add WLAN.

Give the SSID a name, such as "Residents WiFi".

On the Security card, select WPA-2/PSK with multiple passphrases.

Select Local or Cloud as a source.

Enable the checkbox next to Configure as a personal WLAN.

Account integration

To connect Cusna to your Mist account, you need to generate an API Access Token and to retrieve your Organization ID.

Go to Organization and select Settings.

In the top left card, you can find the Organization ID. Copy it because you'll need to enter it later in the Cusna dashboard.

Scroll down to the end of the page until you find the card API Token. Click Create Token.

Give the token a name, such as "Cusna" and select Network Admin as Access Level.

In the Site Access setting, select All Sites. Click Generate.

Copy the value that appears in the Key input and save it. You'll need to enter it in the Cusna dashboard.

Open your Cusna dashboard and go to Setting, expand the WiFi setup card, select Juniper (Mist) and enter your API Token and your Organization ID

On PSK Mode, you can select among the following options:

  1. Org Level: with this option, PSKs will be created at the Organization level, meaning that users could use them to connect to any Site.

  2. Site Level: with this option, each PSK will be valid only on the Site for which it is initialized.

When you select Org Lelvel PSKs, Cusna Accounts are still associated with an initial Location. However, their WiFi passphrase will be working across all Locations/Sites.
