Offline Dashboard Backup and Restore

Kind of a big deal

Offline Dashboard Backup and Restore

You had better sit down before I tell you this.

 

I've managed to write a script to about 75% backup a Meraki Dashboard configuration to a file, and then restore the environment.

@ww the Dashboard API does not let you configure those settings, only retrieve them - so yes, I have to delete them otherwise the update call fails.

Nice work @PhilipDAth! I was just thinking, wouldn't it be great if Meraki added a roll-back feature within dashboard natively. I.e You'd make a change to some configuration apply the change, you'd then have a ten minute period to be able to roll back in the case of causing any unforeseen problems.

The one thing I miss from Cisco IOS is the reload in command.  Have an option to send config changes and if you don't send a command to approve them in a timeframe restart on the old config.  Nothing worse than accidentally locking yourself out of something at remote site.
