The Plasma Cloud console allows you to create a new SSID from scratch or clone an existing SSID. Cloning means creating a new SSID with the exact same configuration as the source SSID. This guide leads you through the process of cloning an SSID. To learn how to create a new SSID without cloning, please see this article.
Which SSID settings will be cloned?
The following settings will be copied from the source to the new SSID:
- General settings (SSID on/off, hide SSID);
- Captive portal;
- Client throttling and isolation;
- WiFi scheduling;
- Broadcast name override on 2.4GHz and 5Ghz.

- Log into the Plasma Cloud console;
