  3. Wireless VLAN Exclude List (optional) - You can exclude devices associated with one or a list of VLANs separated by comma.

NOTE
Cisco Prime applies rate limits to API requests from non-admin users. In large networks, using a read-only account may cause delays during the discovery process. In those cases, an account with admin privileges may be used; or the rate limits may be adjusted per the following URL: https://d1nmyq4gcgsfi5.cloudfront.net/media/pi_3_4_devnet/api/v4/index.html@id=rate-limiting-doc.html
