How can we display AP's in the netsight topology AP?
When I discover the Topology MAP it only displays the controller and switches, not the AP's and where they are connected in the network.
If we set the AP's to be discovered via LLDP (On the controller) we also do not see them on the Topology MAP.

I think that is correct as they don't count as an "device" - in Netsight Console you also have only the switches and the controller listed correct ?

As the AP has no SNMP agent running you can't discover them as a SNMP device.

If you use NAC in your network you'd use OneView to see were everything is connected to.
In the example below I search for the AP name and I'd see the switch port, the home controller, NAC that was used to authenticate the AP.
