Deploy an Access Point Site

Applies To: WatchGuard Cloud-managed Access Points

When you deploy the configuration for an access point site, devices subscribed to the site will receive their configuration from the site settings. For more information about how to subscribe a device to a site, see Subscribe an Access Point to a Site.

You can schedule a deployment from the Deployment History page or from the message banner that appears when you have undeployed saved configuration changes. For more information about configuration deployments, see Manage Device Configuration Deployment.

To deploy an access point site, from WatchGuard Cloud:

  1. Select Configure > Access Point Sites.
    The Access Point Sites page opens.

  1. In the Description text box, type a description for the deployment, then click Deploy.

    The changes are immediately deployed, and access points download an updated configuration from the access point site.

    If you configured an access point VPN in the site configuration, the VPN changes also automatically deploy to the Firebox that is configured for the VPN.
