update docs specify the following -
Pre-provisioned Device State: Some customers pre-provision a network device and ship it to the operational site. When on-boarded, the existing ExtremeCloud IQ status indicates Active Alarms, which is misleading. The latest release indicates the status as Pre-provisioned.
What exactly does this do?
Does putting an AP in “pre-provisioned” state make ECIQ ignore alarms?
If the AP comes online after being pre-provisioned, does it still update firmware, apply the network policy settings, and broadcast SSID etc?
While I like the idea of this feature, it’s also a bit awkward, as if the device comes online, the cloud icon remains purple (as opposed to green for online). Am I missing anything as to the use of this feature?

Thanks again for your patience, I was able to confirm that the APs will get a configuration update pushed to them when they connect to XIQ even if they are in a pre-provisioned state.
