Python 3.6 module providing all current Meraki Dashboard API calls to interface with the Cisco Meraki cloud-managed IT solutions.
Also available via PIP.
- Enable APIs in your Meraki dashboard and obtain an APIKey: Instructions
- Keep your APIKey safe and secure. It is similar to a password for your dashboard. If publishing your Python programs to a wider audience, please research secure handling of APIKeys.
- Although the Meraki API can be accessed in various ways, this module uses Python3. Get started with Python
- After Python is installed, prepare your environment:
- Use pip (or alternative such as easy_install) to install required packages:
- pip install requests
- pip install meraki
- You are now ready to create your first script:
- create a new file and name it with python extension, e.g., meraki_hello_world.py
- import the meraki api into your script, e.g., from meraki import meraki
- use the meraki API to interact with your dashboard
from meraki import meraki
apikey = "jkhsfsdhk32424******example*****jlasdfsdfl3245345"
myOrgs = meraki.myorgaccess(apikey)
Useful API calls to get started
myNetworks = meraki.getnetworklist(apikey, orgid)
deviceList = meraki.getnetworkdevices(apikey, networkid)
clientList = meraki.getclients(apikey,serialnum)
