[Cisco WLC] Show AP name



Hello all.

We are using PRTG to monitore some Cisco APs registered into a Cisco WLC. On PRTG, we can see the IP address of the AP but we need to add the AP name configured on WLC.

For example, if my AP is labeled as 'MainRoom' on the WLC, we need that this name could be transfer to PRTG in order to include this name on the alerts. It will be helpful for us in order to localice faster the AP with problems.

Now on the alerts we are receiving only the IP address and we have to check manually which AP has problems.

Would it be possible?

Thank you very much! Best Regards.
