Meraki Monitoring

Site24x7 Meraki Monitoring tracks the availability of the Meraki network devices like switches, cameras, security, and various wireless devices using REST APIs. Viewing the response time and packet loss for the security devices helps identify connectivity issues and downtime.

When devices are Down, obtain instant alerts via email, SMS, voice call, or third-party integrations like Jira, Zapier, Slack, Microsoft Teams, ServiceNow, and more. Assign tickets to the right technician for quicker troubleshooting.

Prerequisite

The Meraki REST API key generated in your Cisco Meraki dashboard needs to be granted read-only access to Site24x7.

This API key is encrypted and stored by Site24x7 to ensure it is secure.

How it Works

Once you provide read-only access to Site24x7 for the REST API key generated in the Meraki dashboard, Site24x7 will begin discovering devices. When you choose and add the devices and organizations for monitoring, Site24x7 will start monitoring the Meraki device details like availability, outage history, log information, and configuration details across thousands of networks in your organization in minutes.

Add the Meraki Organization and Devices to be monitored

      1. Log in to your Site24x7 account.
      2. Navigate to Admin > Add Monitor, and click Meraki Monitoring under Network. Alternatively, you can go to Network > Meraki.
      3. Enter details like Display Name and Meraki REST API Key, and click Next.
      4. Choose the Meraki organization to be monitored from the table with information like Organization Name, Organization ID, Organization URL, and click Next

        Monitor meraki organization.

      5. Select the Meraki devices to be monitored from the chosen organization, and click Next.

        Monitor meraki devices.
