    • Once an Instant ON AP is added to a site, there are totally 4 possible states an AP can be in,.
    1. Offline
    2. Synchronizing
    3. Active
    4. Restarting
    • Offline:
      • The APs keep polling continuously to the Cloud Server to make sure it has Internet reachability.
      • The polling happens using https port (443).
      • When the polling fails to Cloud Servers, the AP is considered to be Offline.
      • Any config change done to the site will not be pushed to the AP/s when the state is offline.

    • Synchronizing :
      • The state becomes Synchronizing, when a Config Push from the Portal / App is in progress.
      • For example, when a new Network is created, the portal / App pushes the new Network to the APs via Cloud Server.
      • The state remains until the configuration is synced.


    • Active :
      • When the AP starts communicating to the Cloud server, it means that the AP has Internet Connectivity.
      • The APs' state becomes Active in the App and Portal.
      • The Active state is an indication that the APs are in sync with the Cloud with respect to configuration status..

    State Duration :

    • The State Duration shows how long an AP was in the respective state.
    • The State Duration does not include the Synchronizing state.
    • When the state is Active, the State Duration shows how long the AP was powered on (Irrespective of the AP losing connection to the Cloud and regaining the connection again).
    • When the state is Offline, the State Duration shows how long the AP was not able to communicate with the Cloud.
    • When the state is Restarting, the State Duration shows the time duration since the Restart button was clicked.

    Please provide ability to force sync access points.  I'm having trouble getting configuration changes through without rebooting the ap.  Add another button next to restart in the web app please.
