Configuring PPSK and CCG in XIQ

“PPSK Classification in ExtremeCloud IQ allows you to deploy a singular SSID, with multiple individual authentication credentials assigned to different locations, thereby avoiding the need for creating many Network Policies.
PPSK classification is the ability to assign classification rules to individual PPSK users.”
 
For this doc, the Company is ABC Coffee and many store fronts.
PPSK:  Private Pre-Shared Key
CCG:    Cloud Configuration Group

Example:
ABC Coffee chain with many store fronts, each ABC Coffee Store front having their own unique authentication credential using one SSID for all locations.
This can be done using PPSK Classification using the four steps below.
