scripts approval process


Open Mesh strives to provide customers with the flexibility of customizing our devices and software to their specific needs. scripts are one way we allow our customers to do that. Historically, we have allowed users to host and download any scripts onto the devices. In order to comply with new FCC rules, that mandate that certain parts of the WiFi radio settings not be altered by end users, we are introducing an approval process for scripts.

The new approval process goes into effect for the new OM5P-AC model, MR1750 units sold after May 1, 2016, and for all Open Mesh access points starting June 2016.

The new process for deploying scripts is as follows:

  • Collect all files required for you to deploy your custom application code and send them to
    • This includes the main script and any other files that it depends on.
    • Binary files can no longer be included, as we need to be able to see what the code does.
  • Provide a contact person (email, phone) for additional questions, as our team reviews your files.
  • Wait for our team to review and process the files.
    • Once we are done reviewing and approving the files, we will host them on our AWS servers and provide you a URL.
  • Once you get back a URL from our team, you can use it to install scripts using CloudTrax, the way you did before.

Unapproved scripts will generate an error in CloudTrax: "Your script was not applied to all access points."

For details on how to install scripts via CloudTrax, please read scripts overview.
