The Cisco Meraki adapter fetches data about Cisco devices and their connected clients only through the Meraki REST API.
The Cisco Meraki Adapter connection requires the following parameters:
- Cisco Meraki Domain - The domain of the Cisco Meraki Admin panel.
- API Key - An API key created in the admin panel. The adapter doesn’t require username and password.
- Verify SSL - Choose whether to verify the SSL certificate of the server.
- VLAN Exclude List (optional) – An optional list for excluding fetching connected devices from specific VLANs.
- Exclude No VLAN Clients (optional) - An option for excluding fetching connected devices if not associated with any VLAN.
- HTTPS Proxy (optional) - You can configure a proxy specifically to the adapter instead of directly approaching the domain.
- Choose Instance - If you are using multi-nodes, choose the Axonius node that is integrated with the adapter. By default, the 'Master' Axonius node (instance) is used. For details, see Connecting Additional Axonius Nodes.
Creating API Key in Cisco Meraki
To create an API key, go to the admin panel. After logging into the panel, click on the username in the top right of the screen and then on My profile:
After clicking on My Profile you will enter a new page where you will see the API Access section.
Click on Generate new API key and save it to a secure location (you will need it later when configuring the adapter)
Fill all required fields in the adapter configuration, click save and the Cisco Meraki adapter is configured.
