Add them to the DCR Exclude list. Go to Common Services > Device and Credentials > Device Management, and click the Exclude button. Populate the exclude list with all of your APs.

Hmm, what's the intended use of discovery filters, then?

Discovery filters are used for IP address instances or ranges, not device types.

Quoting CiscoWorks Common Services 3.1.1 online help:

"Filters in Common Services Device Discovery allow to include or exclude devices from the network based on the following:

* IP Address

* DNS Domain

* SysObjectID

* SysLocation"

My impression was, that filters are used to

designate which devices are scanned during discovery, while the excude list is applied

later, just before devices are added/updated to DCR.

But without a detailed documentation this is only a guess, and would love to hear some insider's comment on this.

Discovery filters only control what Discovery scans and adds to DCR. Adding devices to the DCR exclude list will ensure that they cannot be added to DCR by any means.

but what I have seen (in a presentation not in real life) in LMS 3.1 you will be able to exclude devices from discovery by their sysObjectID! nice feature!

This is true. You can enter the sysObjectID manually, or select it from the MDF selector.
