Enabling API integration between your UXI sensors and Aruba Central

Written by Josh Peters
Updated over a week ago

We are excited to announce that you can now integrate UXI sensors with Aruba Central Cloud and On-Prem! This API-based integration lets you monitor a high-level summary of UXI alerts on the Central Network Health Dashboard.

Setting up the integration:

Prerequisite: Sensors have to be configured to test an SSID on an AP that is mapped to a physical site on Aruba Central.

Using HPE Greenlake:

  1. Launch your Aruba Central account from Applications.

  2. Navigate to Organization > Platform Integration > Rest API > System Apps & Tokens

  3. Click on +Add Apps and Tokens

  4. Enter an Application Name to easily identify where this token is being used and click on Generate.

  5. Once the token is generated, follow the next steps below from Step 5.

Here is a quick video setting up Aruba Central Integration with UXI dashboard:

If you are not using HPE Greenlake yet, here is how you can set up integration directly from Aruba Central:

  1. Navigate to Account Home>API Gateway>System Apps & Tokens

  2. Click on +Add Apps and Tokens

  3. Enter an Application Name to easily identify where this token is being used. For e.g. UXI. Select Application: Network Operations and click on Generate

5. Once the token is generated, note down the Client ID and Client Secret

6. Scroll down and click on Download Token to download and save the JSON file

7. Navigate to the APIs tab and note down the URL(grab the first part) listed under Documentation

8. Log in to the UXI Dashboard

9. Navigate to Settings>Account>Integrations

10. Click on Link Central Account

11. Select Server Type: Cloud or On-Prem.

12. For Central cloud accounts: Enter the Client ID, Secret, Cluster URL and upload the JSON file obtained from the Central dashboard as a Token and click Add.

13. For Central On-Prem:

Note: The following IP addresses (UXI Cloud backend) should be allowed to initiate API calls (port 443) to COP:





Enter Client ID, Secret, and Token File obtained while creating API token on the Central account. If your server is using a self-signed certificate, disable SSL Verification. Else let it remain enabled.

In 5-10 minutes, User Experience will appear on Central’s network health map view and can be viewed by clicking on the site pins. Clicking on the User Experience alerts will redirect you to to dig deeper.

Things to note:

  1. This integration is supported on Central v2.5.2 and later

  2. Please do not re-use the generated Central Token for anything else

  3. The sensors will automatically sync with Central to be mapped to their respective Sites once every day. If a manual refresh is needed you can click on the refresh button on the UXI dashboard

You should be able to see ongoing incident/issue with a smiley face on Aruba Central under Network Health and by clicking on it you will be directed to the UXI dashboard.

Note: The sensor needs to be connected to an access point that appears in the customers' Central account for the UXI status to appear on the above view.

Key Limitations for MSP mode:

  • If you have MSP mode in Greenlake Cloud Platform and if you create an API token from the Central account inside MSP and insert the token in the UXI dashboard you will not see sensors mapped to the site. To have proper sensors mapping to the site, you will have to create an API token from the actual customer account's Central instance.
