CONFIG_BT_WHITELIST

Enable whitelist support

Type: bool

Help

This option enables the whitelist API. This takes advantage of the whitelisting feature of a BLE controller. The whitelist is a global list and the same whitelist is used by both scanner and advertiser. The whitelist cannot be modified while it is in use.

An Advertiser can whitelist which peers can connect or request scan response data. A scanner can whitelist advertiser for which it will generate advertising reports. Connections can be established automatically for whitelisted peers.

This options deprecates the bt_le_set_auto_conn API in favor of the bt_conn_create_aute_le API.

Direct dependencies

BT_HCI_HOST && BT_HCI && BT

(Includes any dependencies from ifs and menus.)
