I want to know if there is REST call to get the probing clients count.
Please tell me if this is possible or not and if it's possible, where can I find this information.
https://cmxlocationsandbox.cisco.com/api/location/v2/clients?sortBy=dot11Status, however no subtotal counts given.
This count will have to be a separate query from the count reply.
"Dot11Status" (PROBING, ASSOCIATED, UNKNOWN)
In the Presence API the following resource returns the active clients seen in the last 20 minutes.
Reference documents for Cloud based Presence and On Premise Presence has values for the following:
Interesting that we see values for both visitor and passerBy. Both false means Presence ignores client, unless client becomes associated and then will be classified as a visitor regardless of RSSI proximity.
Probing would be classified as either visitor or passerBy with associated false.
Presence analytics provides analytics based on the proximity of the Devices to a WiFi Access Point. A collection of WiFi Access Points can be added together to form a site and analytics can be defined on a per-site basis. Presence analytics provides the following benefits:
- Location statistics to improve customer engagement and loyalty across sites.
- Insight into mobile behavior across locations and enables Customer to enhance Customer’s on-site customer experience, make better decisions about how to engage visitors, and optimize business strategies.
- Statistics on the number of first-time visitors vs. repeat visitors and number of Devices passing by vs. Devices spending time in the site.
It reports the following
- Passerby, Visitors & Connected Devices over time for a given time range.
- Distribution by connected state: Passerby vs. Visitors, Probing vs. Connected visitors.
- Dwell time distribution for a given time range.
- Device mix with different dwell times at any given time within a time period.
- Repeat visitors (at any given time or aggregate) by frequency of the visit within a time period.
• Connected - Those devices which are connected to a WiFi network.
• Visitors - Clients associated with AP in a site are classified as visitors at the site.
• Passerby - whether a client device is found in the site or is just a passer-by and not connected to a site. Passerby when connected to a site for more than "x" minutes (default 5 min) are converted into visitors.
• Probing - When a mobile device is connecting to a WiFi network (connecting state), In this case AP will capture the MAC address of your device.
