I would like a way to exclude a single device on a network from alerting. Does anyone else have the same requirement?
Our situation is that AP is a repeater, due to cabling issues that cannot be resolved.
The options as I see it:
- Check and ignore select alerts from this site.
- Create a new template, but I only want one excluded not the whole network.
- Create an external tool to manage this
All are not ideal. Just curious if anyone else have this same requirement and their thoughts.
A cable issue that cannot be resolved?
Currently, I don't believe there is a way to exempt one device from alerting but you could create a second network (clone of the existing). Then move that AP to the new network and turn off alerting in that network. Not ideal but would function as a workaround.
@Adam Yes, it is a protected old building. We have an option, but it would ruin the aesthetics with A LOT of cabling.
I suppose, if this is just a repeater, this would work. Whilst I do appreciate the workaround (+ Kudos), this then adds the requirement of when the template is updated this would need to be updated after and this would need added somewhere as a note.
I will Make a Wish to add tags to the Alert page.
Ultimately I agree, the reporting/alerting could be significantly more robust. I've run into a number of scenarios where the alerting was limited.
In addition to making wishes, which never hurts, also run this feature request through your local Meraki sales team. We can search if an FR is already in the system, and if not, create one and add your use case for consideration.
