Replacing existing single unifi AP with newer model

When you replace an existing unifi AP do you have to manually configure the new replacement or is their a way to use the backed up configuration from the existing one?

Just join it to the controller and it will inherit the settings from your WiFI config.

Thanks for the quick response Tom. I was expecting it to adopt with default settings not inherit the wifi settings that were configured for the original AP it replaced.

Every AP you adopt to the same network inherits the settings as this is how you do large deployments. Set the WiFi settings, adopt ALL THE AP’s.
