You create it on the 1552

You create it on the 1552 once the AP joins.  One it joins, you will have to choose that AP and then set the AP mode to Bridge and then apply.  This will reboot the AP.  Once the AP comes back, you will have a MESH tab on that specific AP or any AP that you have set to Bridge mode.  You then set the AP role and the bridge group name there.  Here is an older MESH deployment guide to follow.

Hi Scott,  I really

Hi Scott,

  I really appreciate the quick response, I was looking for a central place to create the BGN and then choosing from a drop down box just like the AP Groups, But I think it's not there... Thanks again for your timely response.

You also need to add the 1552

You also need to add the 1552 base mac address to the mac filter before it joins the WLC.  The info is in the link I posted previously.
